To Be Alive and Forget This, Nick Kline & Jean-François Bérubé. May 28 2014, Formats
 
To Be Alive and Forget This is an artists’ publication that is a visual conversation between NYC based artist Nick Kline and Montreal based photographer Jean-François Bérubé. Double sided, Kline’s photographs of textured and patterned rubber silicone castings from cut trees meet Bérubé’s portraits of people, personal snapshots and landscapes. Both series were created in the village of Causapscal, Quebec, Canada, though known for its world-class salmon fishing, it has another distinction: historically high rates of self-inflicted death. The rotation of the book structure as well as experiments with balance and centering, attempts to exemplify the turbulent struggle of many who survive the loss of loved ones who committed suicide.
 
The event/installation at Formats is in relationship with Kline’s current exhibition at Occurrence Gallery titled Stony Bottom Rocky Point, and his Residency at Artexte.
 
Kline has had numerous solo and group exhibitions of his work both in the US and Internationally. His artists’ publications can be found at Formats, Printed Matter Inc., NYC and other venues, and are in permanent collections including the Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Artexte and Banff Center. In September 2014 Kline’s collaborative book with Kegan McFadden, Boys’ Shirts, As We Try and Sleep Press, will be launched at Printed Matter Inc, in conjunction with his exhibition at R. Jampol Projects, NYC. The Meeting: On the Life and Work of Karl Spork, edited by Kline, was released in January 2013 by Schlebrugge Editors, Vienna, Austria. His artists’ publication Sorry You’re Here, Prosjektrom Normans, was a finalist in NATT & DAG Magazine’s, Norway, National Book of the Year Award, 2012. In 2014-16 Momenta Art, Brooklyn, NY will publish Nick Kline: Booths,1999-2014. Also upcoming Kline will have a solo-exhibition at Another Space, Copenhagen, Denmark and Artist-in-Residence at Center for Contemporary Art, Prague, Czech Republic.
