Honeycombing - Archive event VII , Looiersgracht 60, Amsterdam
Archive Event VII 'Honeycombing' is a dual presentation from artists Elena Khurtova and Marie Ilse Bourlanges. In archival terminologies, the term ‘honeycombing’ refers to a technique of leaving open spaces in storage shelving to allow for additions to existing collections.
'Honeycombing' is organized around the launch of Elena Khurtova's artist book 'Displace' and 'Mothers's Milk' by Marie Ilse Bourlanges, published by Jap Sam Books, alongside the works, research and conversations that have accompanied them.
The book launch Displace featured a reading of essay contribution Longer thoughts than mind can have by Amelia Groom, followed by a discussion between the artist, researcher and curator Maddie Rose Hills and graphic designer Tariq Heijboer.
