Nel Aerts, ‘Hundred Zundert’
Published by Posture Editions, 2016/N°19
160 pagina's, z/w illustraties, 29,7 x 21 cm, paperback, Dutch/English
Nel Aerts spent a three-month residency at the Vincent Van Gogh Huis in Zundert, the village where Van Gogh grew up. Instead of trying to toe the artist’s footsteps, she positioned herself in the iconic interior of the sexton’s house, creating a frame for an extended series of self portraits.
Posture Editions selected one hundred of these ballpoint pen drawings and rendered them full-sized in the publication Hundred Zundert. Nel Aerts already presented a first set of these drawings during her recent exhibition Billenkoek at KIOSK, and for this occasion she will return with a single-day show and a silkscreen poster edition.
