Egon Van Herreweghe presents a new series in the Window this season. It features painted woodcuts of hi-fi equipment that can be purchased through web stores. He focuses on small, non-essential parts that condense visual codes and messages. Once photographed, the disproportionate objects resemble packshots on bol.com.
A short text by Steven Humblet will accompany all five objects; the text will be available at the gallery and will be published in its entirety along with the photos in the summer of 2020.
