Bridget Baker and Bianca Baldi at Edition

Fourthwall Books is pleased to host the presentation of 'ACT 1: ÆROLITHE ILLUSION', a limited edition publication by the Bureau de Cinéma Africain (ABC).


Book launch
7 December, 2 pm

ABC, a project of Bridget Baker and Bianca Baldi, researches the dual character of the film image that encompasses both actuality and illusion. Through their ‘restagings’, ABC investigates the logic of illusion in cinema. 'ACT 1: ÆROLITHE ILLUSION' is ABC’s first publication, and is an extension of their film installation of the same name exhibited at GoetheonMain in Johannesburg in 2013.

The film installation makes reference to the autobiography of the American magician Carl Hertz, 'A Modern Mystery Merchant', in which Hertz records his first trip to South Africa in 1896. Hertz brought a cinematograph and 5 films to Johannesburg, projecting these alongside his levitation act, 'The ÆROLITHE ILLUSION', at the Empire Theatre of Varieties on the corner of Fox and Ferreira Streets. ABC uses film stills from the films Hertz projected as well as images of the magical act of levitation, imaginatively transmitting, through re-enactment, Hertz’s scenes of levitation and suspension.

William Kentridge at Edition

Edition is a space for books and objects; for thinking and talking about the making—manufacture, production, reproduction, distribution, in small and large quantities, limited or unlimited editions—of books and objects, and, possibly, about other serious subjects. Edition is a project of Fourthwall Books and The Library.


William Kentridge

NO, IT IS, a new flipbook by William Kentridge, contains 280 drawings from a series of approximately 500 drawings made over three months. The flipbook was launched in conjunction with an exhibition of the same name at the Goodman Gallery in Cape Town. The 280 drawings in NO, IT IS were made on the pages of old, found books and also feature in three films shown at the exhibition.
