Launch — Rafaël Rozendaal’s & Philippe Karrer’s artists’ book


On Septem­ber 14th, 2013 Spheres launches Rafaël Rozendaal’s and Phil­ippe Karrer’s artists’ book at San Ser­riffe in Ams­ter­dam…


The pub­lic­a­tion Spheres is the doc­u­ment­a­tion of a close col­lab­or­a­tion between an artist and the edit­or, graph­ic design­er Phil­ippe Kar­rer. Every issue is ded­ic­ated to a young artist and their work, in each case explor­ing char­ac­ter, sur­round­ings, every-day life, inspir­a­tions and ideas using uncon­ven­tion­al formats so as to cre­ate a dif­fer­ent, more visu­al approach and under­stand­ing of the artist and his or her work.

Rafaël Rozendaal is the cent­ral fig­ure in the second issue of Spheres. He lives and works in New York. His artist­ic prac­tice con­sists of web­sites, install­a­tions, draw­ings, writ­ings and lec­tures. His work researches the screen as a pictori­al space, reverse engin­eer­ing real­ity into con­densed bits, in a space some­where between anim­ated car­toons and paint­ings. His install­a­tions involve mov­ing light and reflec­tions, tak­ing online works and trans­form­ing them into spa­tial exper­i­ences. He also cre­ated BYOB (Bring Your Own Beam­er), an open source DIY cur­at­ori­al format that is spread­ing across the world rap­idly.”
