CASINOS

book (4), soft cover, color, 256 pages / 27 x 22 cm / Peter Lemmens
edition of 10 copies + 1 A.P.
2005 - 2017

n 2001, ‘Casino’ was announced as the first quadriennale of Ghent. The exhibition came and went, a catalogue was made. There was however never a second edition.
Here a set of unofficial catalogues is produced for each missing year, all replicating the original layout of the 2001 catalogue, New artworks are included, texts and captions are updated and all context images are replaced.

For 2005, ‘A Group Show That Is Also a Soloshow’ contains one artwork and all contextual images are replaced by a series of everyday snapshots depicting a view from the artist’s apartment window at different times during that year.
For 2009, ‘The Same Exhibition Twice’ contains the same artwork as the 2005 book and all contextual images are replaced by a new series of everyday snapshots depicting a view from the artist’s apartment window at different times during that year.
For 2013, ‘Ante- & Outdated’ contains a newly selected artwork and all contextual images are replaced by a new series of snapshots depicting a completely blue sky at different times during that year.
For 2017 and the forth and last book, ‘Finally A Crisis To Take Seriously’ contains again a new artwork, invites a second artist with a new work and all contextual images are replaced by a new series of images depicting screenshots from the artist’s computer at different times during that year.

It’s a catalogue as an exhibition as an artwork as a book.
