| Special, limited edition designed by Tariq Heijboer together with artist Elena Khurtova using soil as pigments creating a duo-colour offset printed publication.

Displace explores the process of entering into a dialogue with soil as a living entity. It offers an intimate insight into Elena Khurtova's artistic research and process during her residency at 3bisF, on the site of Montperrin Psychiatric hospital in Aix-en-Provence, and delves into her personal connection with displaced soils.

Extending the sensitive experience of touching red and yellow soils into the materiality of the book, Elena Khurtova and graphic designer Tariq Heijboer experiment with those very soils as pigments for a duo-colour offset printed book. With essays by writer Amelia Groom and the artist, Displace addresses the materiality of soil through an interplay of imagery, text and tactility.

This project was initiated and presented as a performance and installation at 3bisF Contemporary Art Centre located in Montperrin Psychiatric hospital in Aix-en-Provence (France) during the Manifesta Biennial in 2020.

Elena Khurtova (born in Samara, RU), is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Amsterdam, NL. Her artistic practice spans the fields of installation, performance, video, drawing and artist books, where materiality and temporality play an essential role. 

Reflecting on the interplay of fragility and resilience of human and environmental conditions, Khurtova’s work investigates notions of care and control. Through sensitive performativity, she looks for a primeval understanding of the world around us; lead by an intuitive interaction with matter wherein she does not stand on the world but strives for an interaction from within. 

Elena Khurtova's work has been exhibited internationally, among others in Manifesta 13 Marseille (FR), Looiersgracht 60 (NL), Arti & Amicitiae (NL), Kunsthalle Lottozero (IT), and Korean Ceramic Biennale (KR).

In 2019 Khurtova was awarded the 'Proven talent' grant from the Mondriaan Funds, NL and the artistic research fellowship of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, NL. In conjunction with her artistic practice, she teaches at the Art and Research programme of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie / UvA and the Royal Academy of Arts of The Hague, NL.
