Book release at the opening of the exhibition ‘Daily Pleasures’ at the HART-magazine offices, Antwerp.
The exhibition ‘Daily Pleasures’ presents the work of Lutgart De Meyer (b. 1924). 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 also shows her recent work. Aged 94, Lutgart De Meyer works nowadays mostly with textiles and objects found on her walks through the city.
‘a river in a room’ is a book published by Posture Editions and curated by Liesbet Waegemans. Both the book and the exhibition (15.05-13.06.2019) give an insight into the artist’s playful vision on art and the art world.
