"Le Labo des Héritiers - Bakker / Scarpa / Van Severen / Vermeersch"
This catalog is published by Luster and Grand Hornu Images within the framework of the exhibition Le Labo des Héritiers, from September 21st 2014 till January 4th, 2015 in Grand Hornu.
How do the children or grand children of figures such as Carlo Scarpa, Maarten and Dan Van Severen, Rik and José Vermeersch, Gijs Bakker and Emmy van Leersum deal with this inheritance? With a sense of preservation? With a sense of paradox? With a sense of opposition? With a sense of adaptation? What strategies do they employ on the basis of their line of descent and their family sources of inspiration? Without providing definitive answers to these complex questions, Le labo des héritiers looks at the individual work done by the heirs of these renowned designers, architects and artists.
Texts: Laurent Busine, Siri Driessen, Marc Holthof, Giovanna Massoni, Chris Meplon, Daniel Vader Gucht.
