Pop-Up Gallery and Launch Party

SOMEONE EDITIONS announces the launch of a new art folio, Year of the Quiet Sun. This project combines the collages and poetry of Ludwig Zeller in limited edition letterpress prints.

The one-night pop-up reception will take place at 7:00pm on Saturday, 17th May at the Annex Art Centre, in Toronto’s historical Annex neighbourhood. A broad collection of Zeller’s original pieces will be on display for those wishing to see them and pledge to support the project.

For Year of the Quiet Sun a set of three prints from Zeller’s recent unpublished work will be produced in our small Dundas West letterpress studio in collaboration with Zeller from his home in Oaxaca. Ludwig Zeller is widely recognized as a poet and artist whose influence reaches well beyond the international surrealist movement. With our editor Beatriz Hausner, Someone Editions will pair a selection of Zeller's award-wining poetry with each image, and by employing digital processes to capture the original art and produce the edition, will increase accessibility of the works.

Inspired by Zeller’s collages, which are made from 19th-Century engravings, cut and re-purposed into new and fantastical arrangements, this designed edition will integrate the originals with excerpts of Zeller’s poetry in two languages, producing bold, letterpress objets d’arts. We’re funding this bilingual project through Indiegogo, and our pitch goes live on the 17 May, simultaneous to the pop-up event at Annex Art Centre on Bathurst Street in downtown Toronto.

Someone Editions' art printing practice emerges from disciplines honed in the artists' day to day work at design and fine print studio.

“Ludwig’s art is on a level with Borges. It seems to me he can’t help sharing his delight in the twists & turns of wonder… The elegance & fastidiousness of his composition make Ludwig’s collages captivating. They’re beautiful. And at the same time disturbing.”
Nick Drumbolis

“Zeller’s world is unmistakable and wonderfully terrifying. He creates an imagination in a state of savagery, one that wanders in the desert, brutal and anxious like primitive man.”
José Miguel Oviedo
