Lutgart De Meyer
a river in a room
‘a river in a room’ presents the work of Lutgart De Meyer and is the result of a close friendship between the artist and Liesbet Waegemans.
Both the book and the exhibition ‘Daily Pleasures’ give an insight into Lutgart’s playful vision on art and the art world.
As one of the founding members of the Antwerp avant-garde movement G58, she dedicated herself to ceramics and soon got recognized as one of the key figures establishing the artistic autonomy of this medium. Besides the sculptures and design objects she created in her first period, the exhibition and book also show her recent work. Aged 94, Lutgart De Meyer works nowadays mostly with textiles and objects found on her walks through the city.
The book was released at the opening of the exhibition. More info
Philippe Van Snick
Posture Editions celebrates its 30th publication with a special artist’s multiple by Philippe Van Snick (b. 1946). The work is entitled Huis [House] and has been created specifically for Posture Editions. It consists of 10 silkscreened compositions that together constitute an architectural game.
The 10 + 1 colours—which have become the regular building blocks of Van Snick’s oeuvre—appear in various shapes and places on the five folded sheets of paper; they also constitute the point of departure for a prose text by Koen Brams. The printed sheets of art paper constitute a loose-leaf collection and each of the sheets is a work of art in itself. More info
