Van Abbemuseum Library exhibition
Toine Horvers
Written books
08/09 – 16/10/2009

You are cordially invited to the  opening on Sunday 6 September  from 15:00 until 17:00.

Handwritten texts are a constant factor in the artistic oeuvre of the artist Toine Horvers (Loon op Zand, 1947). With a pencil he builds layer upon layer of chiaroscuro-like pat-
ches which, upon a closer inspection, prove to be descriptions of reality. Sometimes these patches take on the form of portraits or landscapes, or they may be abstract at first sight. 
In the last few years Toine Horvers has collected series of these “drawings” together in books.  The book can serve as a collection,  as in the series of Light self-portraits.
Sometimes the book is the starting point as an object of time and space, such as in the most recent series of Latin names from anatomy books.  In the panoramic descriptions of the island of Inis Oírr, the book is the depiction of an observation.

On 6 September the artist will  perform his work ‘Names: Sections of the brain’.

The exhibition also shows photo leporello's made by Toine Horvers in collaboration with the photographer Henk Geraedts, as a way to visualise his performances in the 80's.
