Gerhard Marcks Haus Bremen & Mer. Borgerhoff & Lamberigts, 2019
This book can be seen as and independent editorial project that resume the core of Ricardo Brey’s most recent body of works Adrift (2014-ongoing) The publication, developed as a separate undertaking reflects as well on the core of the overall aspiration of Ricardo Brey for his exhibitions in Museum De Domijnen in Sittard, the Netherlands (10 February – 10 June 2019) and Gerhard-Marcks Haus, Bremen, Germany (10 December – 1 Maart 2020). While it is not an artist book in the traditional sense, it is definitively a project by an artist. The aim of the publication is to create a sense of the artistic space that Brey wants to offer, with a polyphony of voices and an immersive sphere in which a quality of behavior is of prime importance. It focusses strongly on his most recent body of works, Adrift.
