No thanks, I’m just looking
Lisa Sudhibhasilp
Building Fictions - 32.00€ -

Born out of her fascination for shop displays, Lisa Sudhibhasilp imagined an exhibition in a hardware store. Improvising a series of sculptural interventions in situ, the artist played with existing display structures, proposing the hardware store as a place where the display of materiality can be contemplated like works of art in exhibition spaces. Photographer Johannes Schwartz documented the artist’s ephemeral installations and the existing fixtures and fittings, creating a portrait of the store. Accompanying the visual journey, a series of texts written by Sudhibhasilp, illustrated by Rudy Guedj, provides insight into her research through anecdotal stories and other miscellaneous facts on materials and exhibition design. Shifting between the form of the artist book and the exhibition catalogue “No thanks, I’m just looking” stands as the sole remaining document of the event.

Bottle Joe
Jérémy Laffon & Elvia Teotski
Building Fictions - 23.00€ -

During their residency at Est-Nord-Est in Saint-Port-Joli, Quebec, Elvia Teotski and Jérémy Laffon stumble upon a small shed that seems inhabited but find no trace of its resident Bottle Joe. The artists start to investigate the building and create a series of sculptural yet functional wooden prostheses for its abandoned furniture. Through a drunk photographic journey and a series texts written from the perspective of the mysterious Joe, the publication keeps on zooming in and out of the building and its surrounding environment to account of the temporary monumentalisation of the place and its former inhabitant.
