SPACE IS THE PLACE 2014, BASEL

NERO is glad to present SPACE IS THE PLACE 2014, BASEL. The publication is made up of xerox reproductions that come from the original drawings created by various artists invited by Lorenzo Micheli Gigotti and Fabio Marco Pirovino. The artists were asked to draw by hand the same subject fifty times and the reproductions were displayed in a top floor apartment in Basel open to the public. For one night, on June 20th, 2014, people were able to build their own fanzine by selecting, editing, and recopying the copies using a xerox machine installed in the middle of the space. Instead of the original drawings, the reproductions were shown as the only trace of the initial works, functioning simultaneously as matrices for open pages of books to come.

my heart’s in my hand, and my hand is pierced, and my hand’s in the bag, and the bag is shut, and my heart is caught by Phil Collins

NERO is glad to present my heart’s in my hand, and my hand is pierced, and my hand’s in the bag, and the bag is shut, and my heart is caught by British artist Phil Collins. The edition is composed of a double 12” album which collects 13 tracks by international artists. Neatly set in a silkscreened gatefold sleeve, the LP comes with a booklet featuring original texts by Mark Fisher and Florian Schneider and transcriptions of some of the original telephone conversations.

In 2013 at the GULLIVER center in Cologne, Phil Collins installed a phone booth with a free line that anyone could use for unlimited local and international calls on the agreement that the conversations would be recorded and anonymised. The selected material was posted to a group of international musicians, serving as the starting point for original new songs presented as 7” vinyl records in specially designed listening booths which overlooked the city’s central station.
