Paul Ibou - Metamorphosis - Art object (and calendar 2019 / April 2020)

Availability: In stock (24)

Based on the historical art publication Metamorphosis which dates back from 1968, Stockmans created together with Paul Ibou and curated by Bruno Devos an adaptation which results in a new contemporary art object, using the calendar as an 'excuse' to express the metamorphosis which consistently occurs. In the process the original die-cut tools of 1968 were used combining the most advanced printing techniques of today with artisan techniques and craftmanship of 50 year ago. Enjoy and value the rediscovery of this publication.
