de Appel presents:
An Exhibition-Another Exhibition.
Location: de Appel’s Boys’ School, Eerste Jacob van Campenstraat 59, Amsterdam

An Exhibition-Another Exhibition is the first monograph of Valérie Mannaerts and will be presented a long side Mannaerts solo exhibition "Diamond Dancer" at the Appel Boys'school.

In her work Valérie Mannaerts extends the medium of collage to spatial objects. She examines the physiognomy of things and questions the relationship between organic and inorganic forms, the autonomy of objects and the stories concealed by them.
In 2010 Valérie Mannaerts built an eclectic sculpture park named Blood Flow at Extra City (Antwerp). This exhibition and Diamond Dancer form the basis for Valérie Mannaerts' first monograph, which she conceived as an extended catalogue that contains many images and thoughts on her work including an essay by Anselm Franke and a discussion between Valérie Mannaerts and Ann Demeester. On the occasion of the book presentation, a conversation will take place between the artist, Ann Demeester and Anselm Franke. Valérie Mannaerts will also sign copies.

Please note that An Exhibition-Another Exhibition will be presented in Brussel on the 10th of February at Wiels.
