A River in a Room
‘A river in a room’ presents the work of Lutgart De Meyer (b. 1924) and is the result of a close friendship between the artist and Liesbet Waegemans. Both the book and the exhibition ‘Daily Pleasures’ give an insight into Lutgart’s playful vision on art and the art world. As one of the founding members of the Antwerp avant-garde movement G58, she dedicated herself to ceramics and soon got recognized as one of the key figures establishing the artistic autonomy of this medium. Besides the sculptures and design objects she created in her first period, the book focuses on her recent work. Aged 94, Lutgart De Meyer works nowadays mostly with textiles and objects found on her walks through the city.
