Product Description

This book is the result of a collaboration between Pieter Vermeersch (1973), Paul Cruysberghs, Stephane Symons and Hilde Van Gelder, which was initiated by Steven Vandervelden at STUK Arts Centre. From January to March 2006, Pieter Vermeersch exhibited at STUK, where he had temporarily transformed the entire building by painting all its facade windows pink.

Pieter Vermeersch: Acoustic Abstractions offers an in-depth analysis of Pieter Vermeersch's artistic production from 1998 until today, with a special emphasis on his intervention at STUK in early 2006. It contains three essays: Hilde Van Gelder focuses on Vermeersch's thorough renewal of abstract painting today, Paul Cruysberghs addresses the question of the sublime in relation to Vermeersch's work and Stephane Symons explores - from a Duchampian perspective - the impact of Vermeersch's 'painting on glass.'
