Nikolaas Demoen Labyrinth
ISBN 978 94 9126 235 7
€ 40 available
Labyrinth takes us on a walk through the spaces constructed within the pages of the book and visualises a world in which the exit can’t be found.
With the morphology of the house (windows, doors, steps and curtains) and the theatre (curtains, stage, perspective), a world is evoked in which nothing can serve as a point of reference. The experience is similar to surfing on the internet, scrolling through instagram, unfolding the gallery map of Art Brussels or shopping in a French supermarket.
All images in the book are woodcuts. Christophe Van Gerrewey has written a text that actually creates an imbroglio. The entire book is printed in letterpress.
The book launch coincides with the screening of Demoen’s film Papers, books and bolero, on view at Kunsthal Gent till 22 March. Open: Sat/Sun 11:00-18:00
