out of print
Exercising a recurring, almost obsessional process, Hebbelinck creates a personal universe of ephemera populated by a mass of different taxonomies – photographs of shadows and tables after a meal, chalk drawings, notebooks with sketches, texts and collages. Similar methodologies accompany the production of the studio’s architectural work, illustrated through eight architectural projects, each examined through a specific lens – a collaboration with a photographer or an artist, for example, an unexpected construction detail or the exploration of an original sketch. The presentation of this material in the exhibition, highly systemised and catalogued, is reflected in the book, so that its structure offers a mirror to the works on display.
