For the very first time an overview is published featuring the works of Belgium’s finest street art and graffiti artists. Belgian Street Art Today contains a selection of works made by fifty selected artists, such as Roa, Djoels, Dzia, Jaune, Mata One, 2 Dirty, Bué The Warrior, Joachim, Zenith…

Some of these artists are working around the globe and have received international acclaim; a few of them are even represented by prestigious art galleries abroad.

The selection is preceded by a brief history of street art and a never-before-published comprehensive overview of street art projects and street art and graffiti walks in Belgium. Therefore this book is a must-have for art lovers looking for insider tips and unique experiences.

For more than two years, photographer Vincent Willems crisscrossed Belgium in search of the most spectacular interventions and murals, a passion culminating in this stunning book.

Extended Family

29.95

Everyone who sends in a photo is accepted into my Extended Family. For this endless series I ignore the basic principles of the portrait.
Instead of depicting the recognisable face of just one person, I present the concept of ‘open identity’. I consider love, dependence and
identity with new eyes via African philosophy, Spinoza, Picasso, Thomas Hirschhorn and many others. (Aäron Willem)

Extended Family is an ode to human complexity, from an artist with a significant background in philosophy.
With text by the curator Hans Martens, the philosopher Valérie De Prycker and the artists Anyuta Wiazemsky Snauwaert and Ben Benaouisse.

Triënnale Brugge 2021: TraumA

29.95

With TraumA, the Triennial of Bruges dives into the ‘uncanny’ history and reality of Bruges. Historical layers are exposed, forgotten or hidden storylines discussed. This edition explores the thin line between dream and trauma, between paradise and hell. It appeals to the imagination, to the pomp and circumstance, but also to the ‘uncanny’ that is present underground. For although Bruges seems to be a dream destination for many, poverty, loneliness, pollution or fear also lurk in this picture-perfect world.

Triennial Bruges 2021: TraumA uses artistic and architectural interventions to bring the less attractive aspects to the surface and make them part of the city’s image. It creates a polyphonic discourse, where there is room for imagination, beauty, darkness and complexity. A space where artists and architects can explore both the stage and the dusty wings. Triennial Bruges 2021: TraumA balances between the present and the hidden. With a course of sculptural, architectural and organic creations, it is a celebration of the versatility and mobility of this city.
Between private and public.
Between dream and nightmare.

Sculptures of the Nigerian Middle Belt

75.00

The ethnographic literature of the 20th century focused mainly on the sculptural traditions of the numerous ethnic groups that populated Southern Nigeria while the more northern areas remained largely terra incognita. In 2013 Jan Strybol published a study on the sculpture of Northern Nigeria. He pointed out that in many parts of this region there are peoples who still had, at least until recently, their own sculptural tradition.

Pia Burrick – Lines and Light

27.95

Pia Burrick’s work is not coquettish, but narrative. Stories and images that touch, move and sometimes disturb. It can be divided into applied and free work. Applied, made to order for the interior and to complement existing elements. Creations, mainly stained glass in the traditional technique but with a contemporary design and above all in harmony with the space.

(R)evolution

34.00

Albert Niemeyer has been making his way in the Dutch art world in his own unique way for more than thirty years. Fascinated by the unlimited freedom of expression in the work of Van Gogh, Dalí, Chagall, Picasso and Karel Appel, Niemeyer paints his characters sometimes with a photographic realism, sometimes with an abstract expressionist or with a hint of cubism and futurism.

Sleeping Beauties

24.95

Sleeping Beauties wants to be much more than a predictable collection of sleeping beauties. This exhibition in Gaasbeek Castle (9 Sept. to 13 Nov. 2011) takes the visitor to a dream world down the rabbit hole. The exhibition presents a selection of works of contemporary art from the last thirty years that were specifically inspired by sleep and dream.

Invisible borders

25.00
