For Flat i no. 2, I've worked with Hedwig Houben on a book about her performance piece 'The Hand, the Eye, It and the Foot'.

Hedwig's publication ended up being composed of a new series of drawings that acts as an investigation into and re-enactment of the research behind her performance. Thus, it deals with all the material that lead to the form and content of Hedwig Houben's performance, in order to imagine alternative narratives. The book, which comes in an edition of 245, can well be seen as a compendium to this work.

Hedwig Houben (b. Boxtel, The Netherlands, 1983) lives and works in Brussels, Belgium. Houben studied at Higher Institute for Fine Arts Flanders (HISK), Ghent (2010-2011), Düsseldorf art academy (2006-07) and AKV St. Joost, Breda (2002-06).
