Zoë Gray (Ed.)
In her first monograph, Brussels-based Dutch artist Hedwig Houben (b. 1983) explores her playful, multifaceted practice from a range of artistic angles. Richly illustrated throughout with drawings and photographs, the book documents her literal and symbolic performances, engaging videos and large sculptural installations produced within the last eight years. Featuring both the artist’s voice and an analysis of her work by three different writers, it contains an introduction of her cast of characters like The Hand, The Pyramid, The Cone, The Cylinder and The Other made from plaster, plywood and Plasticine. Three scripts written by Houben, translated from Dutch to English, accompany an analysis of her work by three different writers; an artist interview by curator Vanessa Desclaux; an exploration of Houben’s humour by German-based American artist Rita McBride; and an in-depth look of Houben’s recent work Personal Matters and Public Affairs by Zoë Gray, senior curator at Wiels Contemporary Art Centre, Belgium.
