A tribute to the oeuvre of the Belgian artist

With more than fifty contributions by admirers of his work—from David Lynch to Jan Hoet

Since the late 1990s Michaël Borremans has created an improbably mature body of work that has captured international attention. The disparate spaces he imagines in his paintings, drawings, sculptures, and films are unified by an uncanny sense of dislocation and often unsettling beauty. Rendered in complex palettes and exquisite techniques, Borremans’ works in all media embrace a rich legacy of artistic progenitors, but remain firmly anchored in the present.
Presenting over 100 works created by the artist over a fourteen-year period in all media, this large scale publication offers the most complete overview of Borremans’ oeuvre to date. Contributions include a concise and incisive overview of Borremans’ practice; a revealing, in-depth interview with the artist, addressing process, influence, and philosophical and critical issues; as well as more than 50 individual entries and mini-essays on individual works in the artist’s oeuvre by notable writers, curators, filmmakers, and musicians.
