This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: The young Dutch artist Aukje Koks seeks to unite art and spectator in this playful artist's book that treats art as a "thing among things" open to multiple interpretations. Interested in the intersections between visible reality and the world of ideas, Koks dislocates the viewer's perspective in her paintings and sculptures so that reality and illusion become intermingled and it is no longer clear what is real and what is not. In Ways of Being images of her work are presented in tandem with informal, prosaic reports by friends, critics and curators, which make us aware of the semantics of images and blurring of categories via individual perspectives, ultimately in Koks's view a political statement. Koks made Ways of Being collaboratively with writer/ curator Freek Lomme (texts) and designer/publisher Boy Vereecken (images). Contributions by Constance Barrere Dangleterre, Bianca Stigter, Chris Sharp and Bart Groenendaal.
