For some time Nico Dockx has been working on a publication that captures ten years of artistic practice. A regular description or catalogue would not suffice to illustrate the many-sidedness and complexity of the artist's practice. His ever-changing and evolving archives of experiences and interpretations compel the artist to evaluate and rearrange his work constantly. The artist has decided to create the book in an interactive way, which is in keeping with the co-operative character of his work. At the beginning of 2009 Dockx is going to present a functional dummy. This beta version of the final book will allow for new additions or layers which may lead up to a representative end result. The publication and the underlying investigation are carried out in cooperation with Thomas Boutoux, Valerie Chartrain, Catherine Chevalier, Lieve Laporte and Jan Mast. It is a joint project with LIGHTMACHINE and FLACC.
On Saturday 20 September the artist organizes a private workshop in FLACC with a number of experts who will discuss the structure, the contents and the method of the book. It will be followed by an informal dinner at which everyone is welcome. Please let us know if you wish to attend by sending a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also reach us at 089 84 52 23. On the occasion of this event the artist will also present a new edition.
