Nick van Woert

2014

SPHERES #3 was made with American artist Nick van Woert. Together we explored the use of materials that are symptomatic of his work. Statues were used as stamps and created abstract faces. Spray painted coal slag became a universe and symbolic for his artistic sphere. The variety of these textures form an introduction to his practice. A selection of his ongoing work is shown as it was in his studio – giving the reader an idea of the scale. Van Woert’s thoughts and a text contribution by Joël Vacheron form this «cabinet de curiosité». The special edition is a slipcase made out of coal slag.
