Koenraad Dedobbeleer's practice is a multifaceted, open-ended experiment. With curiosity and humour, he creates sculptures, installations, publications and photographs teeming with references to art, design and architecture. Throughout his work, he explores the ways in which value is ascribed to certain objects or materials by their means of presentation.
This first monograph on Koenraad Dedobbeleer includes an introduction by curator Zoë Gray, followed by an analysis of his intense preoccupation with presentation methods by art historian Patricia Falguières. In addition, the book provides an entertaining and detailed exploration of his work through 16 selected exhibitions. These are supplemented by installation views, floor plans, and specially written texts by artists and curators who have personally experienced these exhibitions: Harold Ancart, Lauren Barnes, Susanne Bieri, Konrad Bitterli, Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy, Kris Kimpe, Pierre Leguillon, Rita McBride, Asier Mendizabal, François Piron, Claire Le Restif, Dieter Roelstraete, Dirk Snauwaert, Susanne Titz, Phillip Van den Bossche, and Janneke de Vries.
