All Belgian Whiskies

24.95

Belgium has all the assets to become a true whisky country. The knowledge required to make whisky is readily available, thanks in part to our centuries-old culture of beer and jenever. A number of Belgian jenever distilleries and breweries have been experimenting with whisky for quite some time, but the concept of ‘Belgian whisky’ only really took off in the recent past. Every year new initiatives arise and time after time the announced releases are sold out in no time. Belgian whisky is appreciated, has become a sought-after collector’s item and regularly wins gold and silver at international competitions.

For the first time, an overview of Belgian whiskies and whisky houses is published in book form.

An indispensable reference work for collectors and whisky lovers alike.

Les / The Tshokwe

45.00

The Tshokwe are a major people of Central Africa who have been present for six centuries on the borders of Zambia, Angola and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Their structured social organization gave them a military and commercial advantage. 

Thanks to this dominant position, they have developed an artistic heritage which gradually became their main identity factor. 

Today, there are two million Tshokwe, half of whom reside in Congo DRC. The people continue to assert their desire to exist through their culture. And the power of their art is internationally recognized. 

 

This reference work allows us to discover the daily life of the Tshokwe but also their crafts, the symbolism of their masks, the power of their rites and the fervor of their popular festivals. It makes us understand how their attachment to tradition helps them to chart a course for the future. 

Author Angelo Turconi has spent over fifty years photographing the artworks, culture and traditions of the DRC.

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.

Hiroto Inoue. Funny Style

39.90

Japanese floral artist Hiroto Inoue, whose delightful charm and witty nature earned him the nicknamed ‘Funny’ in the floral design universe, excels in creating intricate geometric designs and compositions that often seem to defy gravity. His floral creations pair an incredible sensitivity with impeccable technique and testify of his boundless love of nature as well as his inner gentleness. Hiroto Inoue constructs solid and firm backdrops for his flowers with the thinnest and humblest of materials: slender blades of grasses, orchid roots, slivers of bamboo, strips of wood veneer and especially paper. These fascinating, carefully constructed backgrounds are adorned with few or just one single flower. It results in innovative designs that perfectly balance manmade and natural materials, structure and spontaneity.
