Part one. The first in a series of works looking into what beginning (and ending) means – Part one is a collection of pages from English books and (mostly) novels, featuring only the words Part one/Part I/Part etc.
We start things all the time. A train of thought, conversations, love affairs. Often we don’t even know how and when until it has already happened.
In fact ‘to start something’ describes much more of a process than just an onset.
This is what Part one is about. About collecting and not being able to track down where and when a collection starts, about failing to predict the moment it will stop. Because there is no such thing as completeness, because collecting always involves repetition. And because if you keep on repeating something, tracing it back to its origin becomes more and more difficult.
The publication is printed in a limited edition of 101 numbered copies, each reproducing 101 Part ones. It is a collection of pages from English books and (mostly) novels, featuring only the words Part one / Part 1. Each book contains one of the yellowed or faded originals, implying the process of collecting has to start all over again. Not just because a collection is never complete – just because it’s hard, maybe impossible, to stop beginning.
(quotations, Robin Waart, 2010)
The exhibition 'It's hard to stop beginning' is also part of Madness & Arts Festival 2010 which after Toronto (2003) and Münster (2006) will be taking place in Haarlem from 24 September through 3 October, 2010.

Book Launch and exhibition on friday March 5th from 6 - 9 pm in the Gallery, Donkere Spaarne 32 Haarlem.
At 6 pm Hans Aarsman will be in conversation with Cary Markerink.
Memory Traces is a recent publication, in which Markerink relates to notions about landscape, culture, history and memory. Memory Traces is an unconventional photo-book, composed to be an experience, in which a selection of landscape photographs are combined with a multi-layered range of texts including exerpts from traveloques, 'written photographs' and a short story situated in the art-world which, among other things, deals with 'The Artification of Photography' and 'The End of Silver-based Photography'.
The publication consists of the book Memory Traces and two smaller books; Höffding Step and Dark Star. Presented in a special box. The large format photographs were made in Sarajevo; Hiroshima and Nagasaki; Berlin, Bitterfeld-Wolfen and Ronneburg; Bikini Islands and Nam Island; Chernobyl; Khe San and My Lai.

The project Notebook is the artist’s valiant attempt to chart and systematically record her visual fascination for the various forms of the hardware of her notebook. In her analysis of it she didn’t want to overlook any component. Every minute contact point or small connection had to be included. In order to do this, she deliberately, but gently, dismantled the laptop, reducing it to the basic components. It was an irreversible process with far-reaching consequences for both laptop and artist. For this project Appel made a pact with herself that she would bring the painstaking ‘excavation’ of her laptop to a satisfactory conclusion within a period of eighteen months. The process may be compared to the meditative life of a monk. The lengthy procedure involved her copying and categorising every component. What is special is that she mainly based her eight categories solely on aspects of form and generally didn’t concern herself with the functions of the components.
This extensive project led to a series of four consecutive artist’s books in which the entire process is visually logged. In the first book deconstruction, each component found in the notebook has been copied and depicted as a flat surface. The second book decode deciphers the various structures found on the Printed Circuit Board according to form, i.e. lines and rectangles. In this she worked systematically, examining each part for the occurrence of elements from her categories. The most labour-intensive book is writing system in which these decoded structures divided into eight categories are depicted line after line as a legible script. In many respects the result is amazing and unexpected. Associations with architecture recur, among others, in the series Flat Surfaces. The series of lines reveal a wealth and diversity of forms. Also an idea of quantity can be gained, both in the sense of frequent occurrence as well as rarity. In bringing together and systematically arranging similar-shaped components, a context is arrived at in which an observer could believe the work is about a still unknown script. The components are given the connotation of being characters, the meanings of which are as yet unknown: collecting and arranging blend into writing in the eyes of the observer.
Finally, the fourth in the series Index is the ‘log book’ for the entire art work, presenting a review and outline of the results.
It is a liberating thought that such devices can be definitively handed over to fine art and via a personal transformation acquire an unexpected new appeal.
The project culminated in a compound work of four consecutive artist’s books: deconstruction, decode, writing system and index plus a suite of six prints, all laid up in a handmade box.

Schloss is an unusual work for Arturo Herrera, who is known primarily for large and small scale collage as well as murals, minimalist sculpture and drawings that reference Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Herrera, originally from Venezuela, currently lives in Berlin, staying there after receiving a DAAD grant.
In mid-2009, while browsing in a Berlin flea market, he came upon a book on the fine art of pastry decoration published in 1925 containing numerous colour plates depicting outrageous cakes and ridiculously imaginative decorative elements. Edible objects as diverse as a turkish bedroom slipper made of marzipan to small cakes with the shape and coloring of roast chickens.
Herrera knew that he wanted to work with these images but rather than going in a familiar direction such as collage, he chose to make interventions using black ink applied with pen and brush.
The variety of these interventions ranges from a few subtle lines and marks to large black and grey ink washes that al but obscure the formal presentation of the pastry.
