LE LABO DES HERITIERS: BAKKER, SCARPA, VAN SEVEREN & VERMEERSCH. Marie Pok et al. Uitgeverij Luster, Antwerp, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Antique Collectors' Club, Easthampton. 256 pp. 26 x 21 cm. ISBN 9789460581366 Trilingual in English, French and Dutch.
Publisher's description: Carlo Scarpa, Maarten Van Severen, Rik Vermeersch and Gijs Bakker and Emmy Van Leersum are big names in the architecture and design world, and they all have children who have followed in their footsteps. The central question is how do these young designers and artists deal with their inheritance? Do they continue in the same vein as their parents' work or do they stand in opposition to it? Curators Marie Pok (Grand Hornu) and Veerle Wenes (Galerie Valerie Traan) selected the pieces for the exhibition in close cooperation with the young generations of the families concerned. Contemporary work is shown against a backdrop of family history, like a laboratory in which the new generation sets to work. With texts by design expert Chris Meplon and architect Paul Robbrecht among others. This book accompanies an exhibition of the same name at the Grand-Hornu Images museum (September 2014 - January 2015) about the life and work of four families of applied artists: Scarpa, Van Severen, Vermeersch and Bakker- Van Leersum.
