about
einBuch.haus

A book in the form of an exhibition

einBuch.haus considers books as art objects which can be curated and presented in exhibition formats, providing immersive experience between people, objects and spaces.

The artbook platform ‘einBuch.haus’ offers regular events with a specific artbook concept of selected book in the field of arts and design. Each exhibition or event refers to one book, along with contents and related materials.

With an interdisciplinary approach, einBuch.haus are challenged to communicate both material and visual aspects of reading experience by twisting the form and structural interpretation of a book.

A building has its blueprint, frame and materials to become a building, a book also has its own systematic structure such as text, grid and texture to become a book. As if a cluster of buildings form a community where a cultural interplay may begin, the books in the exhibition organised by einBuch.haus encourage the audience to extend their three-dimensional reading experience to become a part of it.

We also have a bookshop to stock experimental books from all over the world, especially from Asia and Europe. The online store ‘einBuch.shop’ will open in 2020.

Daily Peace, 2018

Opening
22 February, 2019
Duration
22 - 24 February, 2019
Concept

On each of the 365 days of 2018, the artist made one painting on a wood piece. Each piece’s shape is the same, designed to fit together with each other forming larger wood sculptures. The painting’s colours were determined by a dice throw. The painting process conjures emergent phrases akin to musical phrases and are expressions of an ongoing ritual or dialogue.

For this exhibition, the pieces are presented assembled into ‘time/location’ sculptures, grouped according to the different locations in which the artist spent time while travelling. There is also a selection of videos documenting the pieces at the time and place they were painted.

The work blurs the lines between our common conceptions of what constitutes ‘a painting’, ‘a drawing’, ‘a sculpture’, ‘a book’, ‘a diary’. While each piece is any of these, the totality of the work rests on the viewers capacity to grasp the work (the year) as a whole while accepting the fact that there is no one absolute way of doing so.

Artist

ilan katin works in a variety of mediums and contexts such as books, paintings, murals, street art, video installation and live video performances both solo and in collaboration with others. His images are primarily abstract. Drawing heavily from music and modern conceptions of form, he seeks to create rituals from properties that emerge through repetition.
