Joris Van de Moortel - Cylinder 6


Comics were Joris Van de Moortel’s first love. His first publication with MER. Paper Kunsthalle (Ghent), the Cylinder series, is not a real comic book series, but the idea is based on the structure of it. The sketches, the colouring, the humour that feels close to the practice: it’s a work in itself and not just a representation of images. The artist prints one new Cylinder issue on the occasion of each new project or exhibition. Each cahier has a unique design and cover. Each will be published separately at first, becoming one book after 10 editions that will be published as a whole. Every edition is a new adventure having the same basic players, added, transformed. It’s one big playground – like a show.

32 pages, 29.7 x 21cm, softcover, MER. Paper Kunsthalle (Ghent).
