Limited Editions

The Centre regularly produces limited editions in collaboration with the artists it shows. These are produced and sold exclusively by the Centre – an interesting opportunity to enrich or start a private collection!

All the profits generated through the sale of limited editions are used by the Centre to produce new works. Acquiring a limited edition from the Centre is a direct contribution towards invigorating and renewing the contemporary art scene – one that genuinely supports the artists. Certain categories of members get a price discount.

Reto Pulfer – Brodolino

“Brodolino is a ghost made from the following items: cinnamon, black cardamom, star anise, fennel seeds, coriander seeds as well as pieces of self-made Raku ceramics. The spices I used in a broth akin to a vietnamese pho soup. I cooked them for one hour in a cotton bag I then removed from the pot. The flavour stays in the soup and the steam has an intense smell. Even though I formed the ghost only after cooking the soup, I think it has always been in the soup and the steam.”

Arvo Leo – Accidental Ant Hill Sculpture

Many years ago there was an enormous forest fire in Canada. The McLure Forest Fire of 2003 (as it is called by some) lasted over 75 days. It destroyed 26,420 hectares of forest as well as many other things natural and man-made. The total estimated cost of the fire was 31.1 million dollars, in addition to 8.2 million dollars in property losses. 72 homes and 9 businesses were destroyed. Amidst these historical statistics it just so happens that a 1984 Ford Mustang vehicle was also engulfed in the flames. The flames were very very hot that day. The flames were so hot that the aluminum housing of the vehicle’s engine melted, resulting in a pool of liquid metal trickling its way down to the ground and into a subterranean ant colony, filling the ant tunnels entirely with itself. A few days later a mechanic named Dave discovered this sculpture in the ground while he was cleaning up the remains of the burned vehicle.

Many people enjoy this sculpture because of its accidental nature. Yet what if it was not an accident? What if Nature, the Car, the Trees, or the Ants themselves had motivation for this sculpture’s creation and were responsible for its coming into being?

Maya Rochat – ShowerPower with U5

Through her multidisciplinary practice, Maya Rochat handles photography and plays on multiple media, from collage to performance through video, to create new and enigmatic images. For the limited editions of the Centre, the artist proposes two variants: ShowerPower with Bermudaa and ShowerPower with U5.

ShowerPower with Bermudaa depicts the performance by the electro musician Bermudaa (AB Records) which took place during the first of the exhibitions conceived by Maya Rochat in the Project Space, A Plastic Tool.
Using the same principle, she reused a photograph of the work of the artist’s collective U5 in the exhibition Protein Fix at the project space for ShowerPower with U5.

Trying to blur the boundaries between reality and fiction, the artist uses the shower curtain – on which she printed these images – as media for these limited editions. The strangeness of these colourful photographs transfigure this everyday object, giving it a new aesthetic dimension.

Sonia Kacem

Sonia Kacem’s work undertakes to reveal the poetic aspect of everyday objects to which we pay no particular attention. For his installations, the artist often uses used materials from the domestic world, such as fabrics, sponges, paper, plastic or old blinds. These materials destined to end up piled up in dumps or dusty cellars find all their pictorial and plastic potential in his hands.

Similarly, this edition, produced by the printer Thomas Perrodin at the Usine, Geneva, is screen printed on recovered maculatures. Produced by Sonia Kacem, in collaboration with the artist Alexia Turlin, this motif, assembled from a collage of sofas cut out from decoration catalogues, is printed on white paper already stained with black ink; each copy is unique.

Karl Holmqvist – Untitled (Smoke Sign)

Created on the occasion of Karl Holmqvist’s personal exhibition WORD SQUARES within the framework of the exhibition From Concrete to Liquid to Spoken Worlds to the Word at Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève, from 31 May to 27 August 2017.

Made with a lighter, like the graffiti left on the bus stops, this utopian message becomes rebellious prose and ultimately in pious wish.
