Finissage of the Exhibition of Marc Camille Chaimowicz & Presentation of the new F.R. David

de Appel, Nieuwe Spiegelstraat 10, Amsterdam

On Sunday 7 September, the last day of the exhibition "In the Cherished Company of Others" of Marc Camille Chaimowicz in Amsterdam, (the exhibition will also be on view at PMMK in Oostende from the 28th of September until Dec. 15) de Appel presents a lively afternoon with:

At 2 pm Guided Tour by director Ann Demeester. Reservation required via reservation@deappel.nl.

At 4 pm Launch of the new edition of F.R.David, de Appel’s journal which focuses on the ‘status’ of writing in contemporary art practice, F.R. David “A is for ‘orses”*.

This issue (ed. Will Holder) had its inception within a notion of idiolects and personal vocabularies, and later went on to encompass notions of the subjective editorial process of speech, abstractions of speech, and logic and mathematics as means of subjective categorisation. "F.R. David “A is for ‘orses” (10 eur. 216 pag.) with contributions by Ackroyd, Andrade Tudela, Deball, de Cointet and many others, is available at de Appel and distributed by Idea Books.

The launch will be followed by the screening of the documentary "Poto and Cabengo" (Jean-Pierre Gorin, 1980). Poto and Cabengo are identical twins that created their own ‘persolect’ or secret language that they have been using up to the age of about 8.

*De F.R.David “A is for ‘orses” will also have booklaunches at:
