First monograph: a survey of the Belgian artist's work over more than 35 years.
This book constitutes the first comprehensive monograph dedicated to the work of the Belgian artist Jacqueline Mesmaeker. A catalog first presents forty one of her works by means of illustrations and notices. The book also includes a dozen essays addressing her singular artistic approach, as well as a biography and a bibliography.
Jacqueline Mesmaeker (born 1929 in Brussels) started her career as fashion designer from 1962 till 1972, before she turned to visual and artistic issues. Drawing, an art form she teached in several art schools (ERG, La Cambre...), runs throughout her rich work that includes installation, video, photography, writing and design. She won the Norwich East Award, in 1996.
Edited by Olivier Mignon.
