Publisher's description: Conceptual French artist Sa.dane Afif (b. 1970), noted within the international art scene, adapts the art of commission as a key strategy in producing, mediating and expanding art. When Afif was awarded the prestigious Gunther- Peill Prize, he traveled to the town Duren, in North Rhine-Westphalia, using its location to reflect on the idea of "Here" (Ici) and "There" (L...-bas). He brought the town's train station lights, loudspeakers and platform announcements into the museum's setting, invited poets and friends to write songs on the themes of "Here" and "There," and created posters for "Ici" and "L.-bas" as markers for his two-part multimedia installation. Ici. was shown in the Leopold-Hoesch-Museum and the Papiermuseum Duren and L...-bas. at the 8th Berlin Biennale and Kunsthaus Glarus, Switzerland. The two-pamphlet artist book project, contained in its own dust jacket, includes installation views, 15 lyrics by different poets and essays on Afif's work by Juan A. Gait.n, Rein Wolfsone, and Diedrich Diederichsen, renowned writers exploring the crossroads of art, politics and pop culture.
