An Exhibition – Another Exhibition
Dynamically moving through media – from paint to bronze, papiermâché to concrete – Belgian artist Valerie Mannaerts playfully arranges sculptural elements to create spatial installations, settings without stages. The first monograph for this artist – who represented Belgium at the 2003 Venice Biennale – covers two solo exhibitions from 2010, Blood Flow (Extra City Kunsthal Antwerp) and Diamond Dancer (de Appel Arts Center Amsterdam). An impeccably produced publication, including photos of works, installations and influences, the monograph includes an essay by Anselm Franke. In a conversation between the artist and Ann Demeester, Mannaerts reveals her vast influences, ranging from Ettore Sotsass to Eugene Atget to David Hockney.
