Paraphernalia - On The Status Of Inspirational Objects
88 pages | Hardcover | 170 × 240 mm | Dutch / English | ISBN: 9789491843082 | 2013
Wim Wauman, known for his still life photographs, invited fellow artists to contribute meaningful objects to his 'Paraphernalia' project, resulting in a collection of 171 objects with which he created and photographed 21 compositions in his studio. These still lifes resonate with historical visual traditions and alchemy, asking observers to make individual interpretations and connections. In this publication, each object is connected to its respective donor and therefore his or her artistic strategy. It includes commentary from the artists about their contributions, an essay by Stefaan Vervoort about the project, and a manifesto by Wauman. Typography: Marc Nagtzaam.
