John Baldessari – Koen Van den Broek. This an Example of That
MER.paperkunsthalle, Gent en BKSM, Strombeek, 2008
Baldessari’s work, often combining black-and-white photographs with colour fields, here subtly is interpreted by Van den Broek, resulting in a fascinating and highly original body of works. The plates in the book are doubled by the designer, creating two possible confrontations per spread, and enhancing the ambiguity of the images.
