Upset down. Paul Bogaers

Upset Down is the dazzling result of a year-long fascination with the photography of ‘psycho-visual’ phenomena, also known as ‘thoughtography’. In keeping with the author’s use of these terms, they may be best described as the paradoxical intention to reveal the invisible or hidden, to represent an inner world, with photographic means.

For the composition of this book, the Dutch photographer Paul Bogaers has organized his work in a completely new mode. On every right page, a photograph is reproduced upright, while every left page bears an upside down photograph. This remains unchanged of course when the book is turned around, although every picture will be reversed in position. In this way, the book presents two different but closely interconnected expeditions – parallel journeys along unexplored phenomena, the starting point of the first being the reversed destination of the second and vice versa. Both journeys can be tracked from either end of the book, which as a consequence has two frontsides and no back. The consistency with which this organizing principle is applied brings strange things into daylight that would otherwise have remained hidden behind the apparently average.

This year we will again participate in the KunstRAI Art Amsterdam, which lasts from Thursday 18 to Monday 22 April – a day longer than usual (2nd Easter day)! You can find us at booth 24. We show work by four artists.

Roos Holleman will be represented with a special edition entitled An Inordinate Fondness, on the occasion of her book The Center of Attention, to be published in April. We’ll show a monumental painting plus a multiple of Jan Maarten Voskuil, in response to the publication in March of his monograph Round Trip. Robert Zandstra will be represented with a series of drawings in response to the leporello Stage of Being, which was published in September 2018. Finally we’ll show new paintings by Seet van Hout.
