Elk: 2003-2017

An exhibition by Jocko Weyland

December 8, 2017


Printed Matter is pleased to present Elk: 2003-2017, an exhibition of publications and corresponding print material by artist Jocko Weyland. A full run of Elk, the photocopied serial publication founded by Weyland in 2003, is on view alongside books published under the Elk imprint, original templates, posters for Elk Gallery shows, correspondence, ephemera, and future Elk material. A newly created Printed Matter Elk zine and editioned poster will also be released on occasion of the show. Join us for an opening reception with the artist on Friday, December 8, 6-8PM.

Over the last fifteen years Weyland has produced thirty-four issues of Elk, always in a consistent 5 3/8 × 8” format, saddle-stitched, with a black and white interior and full-color cover. Supposedly themeless, Elk carries on the legacy of minimalist skate, punk, and off-center art magazines of the early- to mid-1980s, with – as Weyland has noted – a “discriminating catholic sensibility”. The zine is simultaneously ruminative and unpremeditated, roughly constructed, built from the spontaneous connections that emerge as found materials are set in relation to one another in sometimes straightforward but often more allusive ways. The publications ask how images can be made to stand on their own.

To this end, each spread of Elk features a set of paired-off image/text excerpts that have been borrowed from various sources: found images from books and maverick periodicals, works of art, historical documents, letters, poems, and advertisements. Working through the immeasurably huge pictorial archive around him, Weyland identifies and isolates images, placing them into new contexts to ferret out unexpected and evocative cultural/subcultural affinities as well as formal and compositional resonances. As Weyland reproduces and re-scales each image, distilling down an archive of strange and challenging source material, he levels notions of “high” art and the underground, creating something that is at once serious and playful.

In addition to the zine, Elk also publishes books devoted to artists, writers, and catalogues for Elk Gallery exhibitions, an itinerant manifestation that has hosted 13 shows at unconventional spaces in New York, Los Angeles, and Beijing. These works are also on view.

To celebrate the 8th edition of Offprint Paris, from 9 – 12 November 2017, 130 independent publishers in art, photography and design, from 19 different countries, come together at the Beaux-Arts in Paris.

Created in 2010, Offprint is LUMA Foundation’s platform supporting socially engaged editors experimenting new formats and contents. All year-round, Offprint gathers and presents a group of publishers and lesser-known publications, circulating mostly outside the traditional commercial networks: publishers stricto sensu, as well as art schools, magazines, self-published books, artists collectives, research reviews, zines…

Each year, Offprint organizes a series of events to support publishers: two fairs (Offprint Paris and Offprint London), several travelling libraries (Milan, Amsterdam), a permanent library at the Parc des Ateliers, in Arles, and curated bookshops for private and public institutions.

Supporting artists and the production of ground-breaking cultural projects, LUMA Arles is pleased to produce Offprint. LUMA Arles and Offprint both aim at supporting independent publishing and all fields of contemporary creation.

As the second wave of skateboarding was taking a deep dive in the early 80s, skate park after skate park was bulldozed into oblivion. Skateboarding shifted from concrete pools into wooden backyard half-pipes. The music turned from Disco to Punk and New Wave and the glossy skateboard magazines went out of print.

Around the same time Thrasher skateboard magazine started up as a newsprint zine type of thing inspiring and even encouraging the readers to start a zine of their own as they saw a “new energetic spirit with radical ideas to further expand previous established barriers. Take a pen in hand and draw upon this untapped energy and record the action from the source.” (Thrasher June 1981)

Many skateboarders listen to the advice or were simple driven by their DIY ( Do It Yourself) attitude and stared to take the fate of skateboarding in their own hand.

So its no wonder that the first known zine was called Skate Fate followed by hundreds of zines with great names in the following years. In the early years, edition sizes ranged roughly between 25 to 50 copies. The later years the print runs was around 50 to 100. The zines had a very artist and punk rock inspired design. Next to reports on the local skateboarding scene and skateboarders, trick tips, interviews the creators looked also into art, music, cartoons, and creating their own ads.

Besides that many zines were crudely rendered punk rock-inspired affairs with technically bad photos and crappy drawings, the rawness of no boundaries by advertisers, parents or authority let to amazingly artistic documents of a very unique youth culture. Starting from the US, skateboarders all over the world began to make their own zines and documenting their local secret society!

Famous skateboarders of today like GSD ( Gary Skate Davis ), Steve Caballero, Tod Swank, Claus Grabke and many more created their own zines, played in bands and created their own DIY apparel.

“The exhibition “NO SHIITY ADS” curated by the Skateboardmuseum Berlin and in partnership with FACT. will display a special selection original zines from all over world. Next to a collage of zine content, DIY, Punk and New Wave inspired apparel and the option to look into selected reprinted zines. For a new generation of zine makers, the show hosts artist and zine maker Sergej Vutuc who will create a personal and authentic wall for the show.”

Artist Sergej Vutuc
Born in Doboj (Bosnia and Herzegovina) in 1979 was raised in Zagreb (Croatia), Heilbronn (Germany) and currently lives and works in Berlin (Germany). The work of Sergej Vutuc is about observing the development of the modern society; a privatisation of the public space and conquering the nature with concrete, on one side, and the natural human urge to expand one’s consciousness, to be in between, to exist playfully and live through imagination, on the other side. Skateboard culture is just one of many contemporary social subcultures whose philosophy is based on the aspiration for playfulness and urge to use the open space in the context of freedom of expression. Since the mid 1990s Vutuc has been engaged in the punk and skateboarding community and the aesthetics and philosophies of these DIY-cultures have granted his work a distinct character. Skateboarding is an undeniable part of all this, but the board here might better be understood as a vehicle, than a sporting tool or past time. Vutuc’s work reaffirms that the skateboarder is not a detached voyeur of urban modernity.
