ISABEL MIGUEL ARQUES
Opening 14 november 17.00 - 20.00
'Photographer Stephan Vanfleteren turns his back to the viewer. In his open hands lies the best of all things that can be fried. Actress Hilde van Mieghem is naked and kisses a strawberry. Couturier Dries van Noten crosses his arms above biblical bread.' Thomas Blondeau
'Portret met garnaalkroket' is a unique book of photographs by the Spanish photographer Isabel Miguel Arques (publisher Ludion). With more than 40 portraits and associated still lifes Isabel illustrates her life through Belgium's cultural scene. The number of artists and especially the high quality of their work immediately impressed her. The importance of food is also something that she finds striking. Both aspects form a leitmotiv in this very atypical, eclectic and extraordinary book concerning Belgium, Belgium artists, their tastes and pleasures. Soledad Senlle Gallery will exhibit a selection of the original photographs.
You are most welcome at the festive opening where the photographer herself will be present.
