MER. Paper Kunsthalle and Fonds régional d’art contemporain
Part artist book, part exhibition catalogue published as a component of three joint exhibitions by Koenraad Dedobbeleer and Rita McBride: 'Tight: Repeating Bordedom' at FRAC Bourgogne, Dijon (21.06–12.09.2008), 'Hall', Kunsthalle Bern (04.10–30.11.2008) and 'Privaat', Mu.ZEE, Oostende (24.01–01.03.2009).
The book consists of 2 contributions by the artists and a photographic documentation of the exhibitions.
Both Rita Mc Bride and Koenraad Dedobbeleer are artists who investigate the relation between architecture and institutional and social context, and the confrontation of their strangely connected/disconnected pratices has resulted in 3 highly intelligent shows and a book collaboration with MER.
