Benoît van Innis
Planet Earth 2020; the COVID 19 pandemic crisis expands throughout Europe and the rest of the world. Confinement is decreed and ‘even artists’ must go into quarantine. Restriction of personal mobility becomes our reality. But is it a prison or a mad, new playground for the imagination? Besieged by madness? Besieged by impatience? Or overwhelmed by imagination? Through daily sketches, Benoît van Innis (b. 1960) recreates our universal confinement. His drawings are reminiscent of the best Theatre of the Absurd outlined with irony and black humor, bringing relief in the midst of a dense, profoundly disquieting atmosphere. Each scene provokes our shunned subconscious, making the unreal real. The sparse lines of his sketches do not indulge in detail. At the back of his mind he restlessly explores the things that make him human: artists, philosophers, writers, film directors, football, cycling, family and friends…
Instant Light presents Benoît van Innis’s unreserved smile, his natural curiosity and inquisitive mind displayed in his creations, punctuated by his ever-present smoky cigarettes.
Jan De Vylder
Wat. is. dit.
The internationally renowned Belgian architect Jan De Vylder (b. 1968) has an obsession for drawing. In the 30 years of his architectural career, he has filled hundreds of sketchbooks with architectural ideas, landscapes, clouds, bottles and countless doodles.
The energy of the restless artist pops up from the pages. Browsing through the different sketchbooks, it’s as if De Vylder is constantly on the move. Indeed, the architect travels a lot and spends time on the airplane filling his Moleskines with unmatched tenacity.
Posture Editions publishes a volume with a selection of 150 double page spreads from these sketchbooks, revealing the visual artist inside the architect. The sketches are somewhat similar to those made by other architects because of the speed with which they were made and the explanatory context that characterizes most sketches by architects (Aldo Rossi, Alvaro Siza, Juliaan Lampens, Le Corbusier…). However, the specific character of De Vylder’s drawings lies in the almost nonsensical repetition of the grammar of forms that seems to inspire him and after a while becomes autonomous and sovereign.

Vrienden v/h S.M.A.K.
This Posture Edition will be the artist’s first monograph and unfolds as a narrative that translates images, video work and essays written by the artist herself. The book offers insight in Rustamova’s eloquent and varied oeuvre from the last decade. In the book, Rustamova’s works are presented in a non-hierarchical manner, focusing on their titles and meaning, rather than on chronology or priority. Conceived as an alphabetical lexicon or an encyclopaedia, the book is accompanied by manuscripts, all handwritten by the artist.
On the occasion of Rustamova’s exhibition at the Vrienden v/h S.M.A.K. and the book ‘Horizon’, the artist created a multiple. < More info >

A dream of thirst
Bendt Eyckermans (b. 1994) is a young Belgian painter who paints everyday scenes from his own life. However, in the process of painting, he transforms reality into a very personal language: figures, landscapes and objects turn into an almost sculptural parallel world.
The book Posture Editions will publish, unfolds like an artichoke. As the heart of the book consists of a series of reproductions of the paintings, the reader has to peel off fragments of text and fragments of the painting’s details to reach it. This layered approach seeks to highlight the depth in the artist’s works.
The combination of pages with large, sharp details, pages with entire paintings, the sketchbooks and gouaches guides the reader into Eyckermans’s bizarre, but also recognizable world.
Book release November 2020
To fund the production of the book, Posture Editions, Rossicontemporary and the artist organised a pre-sale at Voordekunst.
Thanks to the generous support and many shreds, we achieved more than our crowdfunding goal.
We will be making a beautiful book with true scale scans, studio images and exhibition images of Kunsthal. More about the book

In the context of ‘Morning Change’, Heide conceived 5 multiples ‘Brieven’. Each of them consists of a series of 3 drawings (89 × 68 cm), folded and placed in a box (23,4 x 18,4 x 1 cm), numbered and signed by the artist.
They are drawn on highly absorbent mulberry paper. After bathing the folded sheets of paper in diluted ink, small black brush strokes and dots—like coded script or fast notes—are applied on the outside of the rolled paper. Unfolded, each sheet of paper reveals a unique writing.
