S&D#024 / APE#017: OCCUPATION AND HOSPITALITY by 019

ベルギーを拠点とするアーティスト・コレクティブ「019」による作品集。「S&D#025/ APE#047: So Many Dark Gifts」、「S&D#024/APE#069: Sabotage And Complicity」の続編である。当初、本作はベルギー人デザイナー、ファーレンテイン・ゲーサルス (Valentijn Goethals)とトマス・ルーテンス(Tomas Lootens)のデザインユニット「WE BECAME AWARE」によって制作が進められていた。このユニットは約10年間にわたり活動して来たが、空間演出やギャラリースペース等のスタジオワークをまとめた本作を制作中、活動休止を決めた。この二人にティム・バイロン(Tim Bryon)を加えたプロジェクト「Smoke & Dust (S&D)」の19番目のプロジェクトから名付けられた「019」はベルギー・ゲントにある溶接工場跡で活動するアーティスト集団であり、彼らが携わった2つのプロジェクトがそれぞれ異なる方向に開くように製本されている。一つはこのスペースで実際に制作されてきたデザインワークに関して、もう一つは「019」の取り組みを自分たちのスペースの外へ出しゲントに移すという企画「Museum of Moving Practice」に関するものである。この方法を取ることで、製本上の面白さだけでなく、非常に意味のある編集の意図を感じさせる。またこのプロジェクトに加え、3つのエッセイ、また制作当時の新作広告が収録されている。作者らは、決してこのスペースを占有したい訳ではなく、内側から外側に向かって発信されまた再発見を生むコラボレーションが生まれる場所として捉えており、「019」に対し「可動性があり、どこかに移動され再び作られるための準備の場となった」と述べている。

019 was never going to remain the only place we worked in. From the start, it’s been a laboratory that swings us into unknown directions, constantly sharpening our sense of improvisation and reinvention on the spot. For three years, from 2013 onwards, we made that old welding factory at Dok Noord in Ghent the focal point of our activities. People even started to identify the entirety of our collective, Smoke & Dust, with what was basically only the name of its nineteenth project. We became 019. The whole project turned us upside down. But in doing so, we became aware as well. We understood that the act of occupying and taking possession of the site was not the goal of our work at all. From the inside out, starting with a wooden construction in its interior and up to the billboard at an outside wall and a series of flagpoles on the roof, we gradually developed the place into an assembly of undergrounds for public and artistic encounter, an emerging space for collaboration that was grounded on the premise that all media at our disposal were common grounds to be rediscovered. That’s when the work began. That’s when things began to move, for real. That’s when we realized—artists, architects, designers and the like—we had all turned into scenographers, regardless of our discipline: co-authors of a scene that was constructed out of margins and constraints, participants in a game of give and take that we endlessly play around a display we like to recycle. In the end, that’s how 019, our handling of its space through appropriation and dispossession, became the site of a moving practice, a collaborative way of working ready to be moved, reproduced and reinvented elsewhere.
