Foreword

It is ten years now since Ludion began to publish graphic work, initially from Ghent and under the Graphic Matter imprint. The direction in which we wanted to take the publishing house was made clear with one of the first editions, a portfolio of two heliogravures by Thierry De Cordier, printed in Paris and titled Nada. From that time on, we would publish not only books about artists we consider interesting and important, but also screenprints, etchings, woodcuts and lithographs, together with limited book editions. We liked the archaic feel of these techniques, especially in a period of technological innovation. Fresh possibilities existed in the contrast between a tradition stretching back to Bruegel and Dürer and the digital world that was steadily imposing itself on us in the early part of this century. A fine example was offered by David Claerbout, who surprised us with a marvellous lithograph, even though he and his computer-controlled work belong to the absolute avant-garde. The idea also appealed to us that we could publish not only about but also with an artist and so help disseminate his or her work in the world. Another motivation was more prosaic: the publishing business was in the grip of a crisis ten years ago and dark clouds were gathering over the future of the illustrated book. Sales plummeted, publishers and book shops went out of business and the market contracted. Publishing graphic work by contemporary artists allowed us to steer our press through the storm. We are sincerely grateful, therefore, to all the artists – famous and less well-known – whose work you will find in this catalogue. Peter Ruyffelaere Publisher

In 2015 we published Satisfied Man, a woodcut by Kerry James Marshall. The edition has sold out and copies are now in museum collections such as the Museum of Modern Art New York, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Kerry James Marshall, Satisfied Man

Pieter Vermeersch

new edition

Variations

Hand-painted book edition Oil paint on paper Size: 33 × 23.6 cm Edition of 100 Published in 2019

€ 250

Each copy is unique and painted by the artist

Ludion recently published the book Variations, which offers a complete overview of Pieter Vermeersch’s career. A limited edition has now been produced as an extra-large book (33 × 23.6 cm instead of 27.5 × 20.3 cm) with a glossy laminated cover. The latter’s blue gradient has been printed mechanically, but the color and proportions were determined by the artist. Pieter Vermeersch has manipulated the cover by adding fingerprints in oil paint – an intervention that pulls the abstract image back into the reality of the moment. This special edition refers directly to Vermeersch’s 2012 work on photography, in which he placed fingerprints in oil paint on C-Prints. Each copy is signed and numbered by the artist, while the colors of the fingerprints on the cover are different for each book.

An appeal for tolerance

In past centuries, Christians set fire to the classical scrolls kept at the Library of Alexandria. Inquisitors in the newly discovered Americas ordered the destruction of Inca and Aztec writings. And a few short years ago, thousands of books and manuscripts were burned in Iraq and Syria because they were not devoted to the Prophet. Censorship and book-burning have occurred throughout history and it was in this context that Leo Copers came up with his IJsboek. As so often in his work, Copers is playing here with apparently contradictory elements to turn things on their head. This book, his monograph Dreams Are Made of This, has been consigned not to the flames but to a hefty block of ice, so that the knowledge it contains can be preserved and passed on to future generations. IJsboek is an appeal for tolerance.

The Revealing Image

Portfolio of 5 modern photo prints representing René Magritte Numbered and validated by the Magritte Estate with blind stamp Size photographs: 10.9 × 8.3 cm (I), 22.1 × 15.8 cm (II), 11.5 × 15.7 cm (III), 5.5 × 8 cm (IV), 10.1 × 7.2 cm (V) Edition of 20 + 3 HC Published in 2017

€ 400

Facsimile photographs based on silver gelatin prints from the artist’s archive

Five photographs, based on original silver gelatin prints, offer us an intimate view of the painter’s artistic practice. Carefully staged scenes show him in front of masterpieces such as Le Masque vide, L’Evidence éternelle, and La Tentation de l’impossible. In a fourth image, he poses with a study he used later while painting. And in the 1928 photograph entitled La Sainte Famille, René and Georgette gaze into the lens with amused expressions. He has a plaster bust in his arms, while his wife holds their little dog Loulou in her lap. They look as though they are part of the painting standing on the easel above them. The photographs in this edition are facsimiles based on silver gelatin prints that belonged to the artist’s archive. Each edition is numbered and validated by the Magritte Estate with an embossed seal.

€ 60

Last copies of an edition of 200, including a C-Print printed and signed by the artist

Sorry Would Have Saved Me the Trip is the result of a lost love. When Thomas Vandenberghe received a break-up letter from his girlfriend in 2011, he made a little book of photographs – his reply to the letter, in images. Six years later, the photographer reviewed and reworked his selection. The story in pictures shows how Vandenberghe tried to deal with the break-up, how he tried to escape his sorrow, and how those around him helped. Six people took him to six different spots. Sorry Would Have Saved Me the Trip is about a journey everyone has to make at some time or another to rediscover themselves. It never became a complete response to the farewell letter. Each edition consists of a copy of the book Sorry Would Have Saved Me the Trip and a C-Print printed, signed, and numbered by Thomas Vandenberghe.

In an interview with the arts and literature magazine Oogst (issue 5), Lara Gasparotto describes how she played by the river as a child, piling up branches and stones on the bank. Water is a recurring theme in her work – girls sunbathing by the riverside, kids diving and swimming, a red river near Seville… In Summer’s Gonna Hurt You, Lara Gasparotto shades beauty into melancholy, just as at the end of summer. Each edition consists of a copy of the book Ask the Dusk and the photograph Summer’s Gonna Hurt You printed on Hahnemülle Photorag and mounted on Dibond.

Last copies of a small but precious book edition comprising a woodcut printed by De Cordier in the Spanish Alpujarras

The artist Louis De Cordier set out in 2010 to construct his Biblioteca Del Sol, an underground repository of thousands of books and seeds, to which he continues to add. Far away from volcanoes and nuclear power stations, the library is intended to preserve knowledge for future generations, even after an apocalyptic disaster. This little book documents the surroundings, building, and use of the Biblioteca Del Sol. It includes a text by the author-poet Maarten Inghels together with Plato’s famous Allegory of the Cave. The publication comprises a woodcut by Louis De Cordier, printed, signed, and numbered by the artist. Each edition consists of a copy of the book Biblioteca Del Sol and a woodcut, Oriole, printed, signed, and numbered by Louis De Cordier.

David Claerbout

Olympia Impression of Rain Original lithograph on Zerkall 270 g Size sheet: 65 × 80 cm Size image: 52 × 68 cm Printed by Atelier Hans Van Dijck, Antwerp Edition of 40 + 7 AP + 2 PP Published in 2017

€ 1200

Claerbout did not transpose something already created, but worked directly on the lithography stone

David Claerbout is known for his video and photographic installations, in which time seems to stand still. The artist makes a series of drawings around each of his projects, which help him explore his themes in more depth. This original lithograph is related to the video installation of the same name from 2016. Olympia (The real time disintegration into ruins of the Berlin Olympic stadium over the course of a thousand years), start 2016 is a virtual record of the decay of the stadium Hitler had built for the 1936 Summer Olympics. A monumental projection on two screens shows how nature will reduce the stadium to a ruin, without human intervention. The installation precisely reproduces the conditions to which the building in Berlin will be exposed for the next thousand years, using climatological updates downloaded in real time. The algorithm-driven process generates fresh images of ageing and decay every day. The work does not contain any explicit criticism of the Third Reich; it is time itself that, in a sense, wreaks revenge.

3 photographs in Ink Jet Size sheet: 10.8 × 8.9 cm Size image: 7.7 × 7.7 cm Printed by De Verbeelding, Purmerend Edition of 25 Published in 2013

€ 600

Polaroid-based edition

Hellen van Meene (1972) is regarded as one of the most important Dutch photographers of her generation. Yellow is a triptych: a young girl at a window, a boy in a room, and a child wrapped in a curtain. The work reveals as much as it conceals. The images are based on Polaroids that Hellen van Meene made in preparation for her photographic work. Bathed in a blinding summer light, the photographs evoke the vulnerable atmosphere of childhood. Yellow shows the photographer’s practice in sketches and explorations.

€ 800

Three lithographs that reflect the essence of Vanderlinden’s work: the play of form and color, the figurative, and the floral

Carole Vanderlinden works intuitively, without detailed preparation. She starts from a color, a memory, or a detail and works out the rest as she goes. This was the case for OZA – a suite of three lithographs. Although the three images are independent of one another, they nevertheless reflect the essence of Vanderlinden’s work: the play of form and color in O, the figurative in Z, and the floral in A. Carole Vanderlinden worked on this edition intensively for six months, in collaboration with Antwerp-based master-printer Hans van Dijck.

€ 400

The snow leopard as a metaphorical self-portrait

The snow leopard is one of the most elusive motifs to pervade Yutaka Sone’s works; like his own peripatetic artistic practice, snow leopards (a protected species) seem to be everywhere, yet leave no trace of their movements. The snow leopard can be seen as a metaphorical selfportrait, as a cypher for the artist himself, or to represent the lone artist figure in general. For this image, the artist used his own cat as a model, transferring its spots onto those of the snow leopard.

Published on the inauguration of the 40m2 stone mosaic by Tuymans at the MAS, Antwerp

Dead Skull has been published on the occasion of the inauguration on May 17th, 2010 of a 40 sq m stone mosaic by Luc Tuymans, located in front of the MAS (Museum aan de Stroom), the newly built archaeology and history museum of the city of Antwerp. The image picked by Luc Tuymans for the immense mosaic square is that of his own 2002 painting Dead Skull, now at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. This Tuymans work points to the history of the city of Antwerp, by using as its source image a commemorative 17th-century stone plate – affixed to the facade of the Antwerp Cathedral – in memory of Quentin Metsys (1466–1530), an early Renaissance painter and “founder” of the Antwerp School of painting.

€ 8000

An edition that reveals an early, unfinished stage in Tuymans’ creative process

The four color etchings Isabel, Diorama, Scramble, and Twenty Seventeen are based on iPhone photographs that Tuymans took while painting. They reveal an early, unfinished stage, which immediately evaporates during the creative process. The paint strokes that Tuymans places in the margin of the painting and the edges of the canvas are also incorporated in the etched image. The ephemeral plays a crucial role in the artist’s work; these color etchings belong to the same category as his tempera murals which no longer exist. At the same time, they offer a special insight into Tuymans’ working process. The crumpled piece of paper in Scramble – still pale in the etching – becomes a monumental, colorful ball in the painting, which contrasts sharply with the dark background. The canary in Isabel will eventually become bright yellow, a surprising color in Tuymans’ work.

Suite of 3 screenprints on BFK Rives 250 g in a portfolio Size sheet and image: 21 cm × 53.5 cm Printed by Tubbax, Antwerp, supervised by Roger Vandaele Edition of 80 + 20 in Roman numerals + 10 AP The copies 1/80 till 80/80 are the trade edition. The copies numbered I/XX to XX/XX are exclusively reserved for the Centre de la Gravure et de l’Image imprimée, La Louvière. Published in 2014

€ 2500

This edition is an exception in Luc Tuymans’ oeuvre in light of his usual reluctance to use black when painting

Surrender is a three-part cycle of drawings executed in white and green pencil on black paper. It reprises the opening sequence of the 1968 film Twist of Sand. A former British naval officer turned smuggler is confronted with his past when he is forced to return to treacherous waters near the Angolan coast in order to retrieve a batch of diamonds. The silkscreen edition – based on the three drawings – is built up of three colors: the black feels absolute and endless, printed as it is beyond the paper’s edges. The prints convey the grain of the pencil traces and also reproduce the vertical streaking drawn by the artist in the originals. Where the paper has been allowed to shine through, the white is particularly vibrant; in other areas the overlay of black, green, and white creates additional tonalities.

A monumental edition of seven color lithographs mounted on four panels of painted Plexiglas and wood, with birdcage

Luc Tuymans on The Rumour: “The latter originated in something I experienced during a holiday in Brittany. We visited various chateaux, and every time I was amazed to find that, at the entrance to the chateau, there was a little dome-like stone building with a little hole at the top – no windows or doors. In one case I overheard how a French father explained this to his son. When the holes were extended upward with a vertical line and these vertical lines were connected, in turn, with a horizontal line, one could determine the dimensions of the castle owner’s estate. Naturally, at that time peasant labourers were not permitted to own pigeons. That was a privilege of the aristocracy. The latter ate the pigeons, and used them as messengers. When the French Revolution broke out, the first thing the people who had belonged to a property owner did was to wring all of the pigeons’ necks. The eyes I painted were taken from a book on pigeon racing, which is very widespread in Belgium. Pigeon breeders can recognize the quality of the pigeons in the way in which the pigeons’ eyes are set in their sockets. This is why there are manuals which show an enlargement of the eyes next to every illustration of a pigeon. It becomes very clear that these are not human eyes. From the point of view of color, the eyes are spectacular. The first eye one sees is the darkest one. It is hung in such a way that the centre of the painting is at a height of 1.60 metres. Next to this, there is a large orange eye hanging below, and above it a darkened, smaller one. The uniformity of the arrangement is thus violated. One naturally has the feeling of being looked at – but in an enlargement.”

A series of etchings in which Aguirre explores the formal vocabulary of his wider oeuvre

L’Univers des Formes is a series of seven prints done in a combination of etching and aquatint. The artist Philip Aguirre y Otegui uses the etchings to explore the distinctive formal vocabulary of his wider oeuvre, with direct references to his sculpture and to large-scale architectural pieces such as Théâtre Source in Cameroon. The series opens with abstract, almost surrealist forms. Bit by bit, though, we recognize elements from the real world, with the final etching actually containing several human figures. The influence of Giorgio de Chirico and René Magritte is palpable.

Taking the fictitious role of a crime photographer, Douglas has created two selenium-toned silver gelatin prints

The special edition of The Secret Agent consists of a white hardbound book and a colophon page, signed and numbered by the artist, and two selenium-toned silver gelatin prints. The Secret Agent transposes a story written by Joseph Conrad in 1907 into Portugal’s seventies, a period of radical political changes that led to the liberation of the country’s former colonies. Douglas has retained the original characters and the plot, but transferred them to the turmoil of Lisbon soon after the Carnation Revolution in 1974.

€ 300

A nod to the Surrealists and Spanish filmmaker Luis Buñuel

La beauté incessible – “non-transferable beauty” – is based on the 2008 painting The End. Jan Van Imschoot drew inspiration for this work from the films of Luis Buñuel. Like the great Surrealist filmmaker, Van Imschoot plays with the boundaries between reality, imagination, memory, and fantasy. We find ourselves in a cosy, bourgeois interior. Yet it is a disconcerting space because of the huge portrait of Catherine Deneuve, who plays the leading roles in Buñuel’s Belle de Jour and Tristana. The portrait on the wall shows Deneuve in all her humanity, but also at a moment in which she gives way to her character’s deepest feelings. The Spanish–oriental bed is a nod to Buñuel, while the flowers, the fruit, and the coffee table refer to Flemish Baroque still lifes – compositions that simultaneously allude to wealth, eroticism, and transience.

Portfolio of 5 copperplate etchings printed on Hahnemühle 300 g in a linen box Size sheet: 45.70 × 35.55 cm Size image: 20.30 × 20.30 cm Printed by Greg Burnet, New York Edition of 40 + 10 AP Published in 2014

€ 900

Wayne Gonzales’s first etchings in over twenty years

Crowd, a series of five copperplate etchings, expresses Wayne Gonzales’ ongoing fascination with the theme of our culture’s indeterminate mass. These prints show a group of houses (inspired by a Walker Evans photograph from the 1936 series American Photographs), a group of people bathing, parked cars, and groups of people sitting and standing at the edge of a forest, perhaps waiting for a concert, a meeting, or a picnic. As with Gonzales’ large-scale paintings, these images leave the viewer with more questions than answers. For this series of etchings – the artist’s first in over twenty years – he applied scratches and cross-hatching directly to the copper plates to provide a diffused sense of light and dark, which paradoxically seems to add detail to the images. The portfolio’s five works take on a surprising and dynamic unity, despite the disparate content seen in each individual “frame.”

€ 450

Leclercq dropped a few drops of rum in the ink, which gives a unique yellowish-gold glow to the prints

Tabulae is a series of four abstract prints by Guy Leclercq that refer to the table, a motif that recurs frequently in his work. The prints are made using a relief printing technique (cardboard print) in which the printing ink is spread on both the higher and the lower areas of the corrugated cardboard. This results during printing in a difference in texture – the background is grainy, the table is smooth. The deep black shapes are demarcated by lines with a yellowishgold glow (produced by mixing a few drops of rum with the printing ink). The result is an exceptionally tactile and sensual work in which geometry and lyricism meet. The prints were made one by one during the summer of 2013 by Guy Leclercq himself in his studio and are based on unique designs. The slowness and care with which the process is carried out contribute to the quality of this extraordinary series.

Sneak Preview

Printmaking remains an essential part of our publishing activities and so we are working on a series of new artists’ editions that will appear next year. These will include a new edition by Pieter Vermeersch, this time on marble, and we are collaborating with the American artist Kerry James Marshall on a woodcut portfolio. We also plan to publish a magnificent series of lithographs next year by the German-Japanese artist Maki Na Kamura. We won’t give away any more just yet, but don’t hesitate to mail us at info@ludion.be if you’d like to be kept informed about our print-publishing programme or are interested in a specific project.
