Nikolaas Demoen: Labyrinth
Posture Editions, 2020
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.
