DRESSING THE SOUL | AGELESS BEAUTY

We are programmed by todays society to reject ageing and decay. Living in the digital age, it seems like we are on a mission to miss nothing. Birgitta de Vos is an artist, designer, photographer, and passionate traveller, and here she captures the beauty of ageing in broken, imperfect, weathered, and derelict objects. The book is about her love for things simply being things, and becomes an inspirational walk of wonder in which we encounter moments and materials touched by time. The humble, silent, and simple become pieces of art, with nature as the artist. Through thought-provoking photography, she encourages seeing mundane objects and ordinary places in a different light.

JONATHAN HOROWITZ LEFTOVER PAINT ABSTRACTIONS

Published in conjunction with an exhibition of new work by New York-based artist Jonathan Horowitz at Xavier Hufkens, Brussels, this catalogue introduces a radical departure from Horowitzs previous work: a new painting series that could be described as abstract expressionist. The project emerged from thinking about ways to get rid of leftover paint. As art historian Joshua Decter writes in his text for the book, An old adage has it that a painting is never finished, it is merely abandoned. For Horowitz, one might propose a new adage: that a can of paint is never finished, it is merely abandoned with some leftover paint inside of it. Features a conversation with the artist.
