Prop, 2022
A duo show of Amanda Crain and Natasha Katedralis organized by Felix Rapp at the former City Centre Motor Inn.

Broken glass is sugar and the horizon is a painting. Wether on screen or on stage, the believability of theatre, film and television relies on our static perspective of the events. Side-step, climb-up or move too close and the illusion splinters into irreparable fragments — “I can’t unsee it now!” Taking its cues from theatre, the staging of homes for sale employs a similarly two-dimensional illusion. Stagers scrub the essential quirks that make home feel like home and replace them with replica sofas and freshly patinaed end tables. The overstuffed pillows and turned-around family photos imply that this sofa is not intended for sitting, these images not for our eyes. An agent ushers us over and we’re kindly asked to keep to the front of house.

The word prop is an abbreviation of property. Like the decorative objects introduced in the staging of property for sale, props are used to create realistic scenes and scenarios in which actors perform. A real knife, for example, is distinct from a prop knife because it is incapable of wounding. For performers and audiences alike it’s often difficult to tell what’s real and what’s fake. Objects found or purchased blend into fabrications. In one corner, an abandoned handbag slouches on a parquet platform. Across a delicately distorted arrangement of ephemera is spun in polyethylene as-if immobilized for the camera. Just as these objects have come to take the place of wood veneer double beds and TV stands, tenants have also moved in place of guests.  

In the parking lot, a dumpster holds the broken artefacts of seventy years of hospitality. Every inkling of ornament has been stripped from these rooms in favour of cold ubiquity. Only its exterior gives clues to its past where between guests, film crews dress sets and rig lights for productions about zombies and superheroes. Now for sixty million all of it is slated for demolition. A presentation centre nearby introduces prospectors to monstrous modulations on steel and glass. Adjacent to keywords on lifestyle, free catalogues reveal the panoramic views of the upper stories. Just high up enough to where scenes of life down below are reserved to pixels on screens.

Le Chauffage (french for “The Heater”) is an artist-run publication based in Brussels. It is conceived as a cross-continental, community oriented platform. Bringing together the work and writing of artists / friends from different cities, Le Chauffage intends to spark discussions and fuel casual forms of critical discourse.

When the seasons change, we give a last glimpse at the words and images printed in old newspapers or magazines before the layers of paper and kindling ignite — smoke gets in your eyes. On the page, what is said is often unremarkable, and photographs seem too purposeful to be judged for their intrinsic quality — these photos are not about photography, this text is not about writing.

There you are! The second issue of Le Chauffage contains photographs and texts, photographs of text, photographs as text and vice versa. Loosely thinking through the format of The Photo Essay celebrated by John Szarkowski in an eponymously titled exhibition at MoMA in 1965, this issue considers some of the artistic possibilities that can be found in such an archaic and historically male-dominated form.

Many of the contributions that make up this second issue are not photo essays per se. But each one of them considers the printed page as a space in its own right. The magazine becomes an interior where words and images entertain a malleable and distinctly porous relationship. At times, it is also a space where artists and writers from different cities were invited to meet and collaborate. And since interest in other people is also an interest in yourself, it is always unclear who is really transforming who?

We and everything around us hold charges of information and memories that are contingent on other bodies and memories to create an environment or circumstance (or container, vessel) in which they can emerge. This magazine is a room filled with guests. It archives touch and registers a moment just passed. Look at the smoke stains. It brings discourse a bit closer to our flesh and skin, and upholds our error oriented thinking. As housekeepers, we know that hygiene is an economy. Please come on in, don’t mind the mess…

ISSUE 404, 2017.
ISSUE 404 magazine is a special edition installment of the original ISSUE Magazine, originally published from 1983 to 1985, subsequently revived between 2012-2014 by Brynn McNab, and again by Jamie Ward in late 2015, now existing as a rather intermittent “quarterly”. ISSUE 404 was initially intended as an extension of Patrik Andersson’s ‘AHIS 404: Art Now’ class at Emily Carr, and has since welcomed additional contributors. The 404 iteration of this magazine continues the project as an arts and culture magazine, reporting on the community through interviews, artworks, and written projects.

Edited and designed by guest editors Catherine de Montreuil, Felix Rapp and Marisa Kriangwiwat Holmes, with contributions by the editors, Adi Berardini, Olga Abeleva, Charlotte Yao, Patrik Andersson, Caitlyn Almond, Lyndsay Pomerantz, Ali Bosley, Julia Hong and more; with art and illustrations by Liz Saunders, Brody McKnight, Francesca Percival and William Dereume.
