THE HOUSE exhibition and new book

13/5 - 12/6/2021

  • LR The House Karin Borghouts
  • The parental home of photographer Karin Borghouts was destroyed in a fire. The photos continue to stir emotions. Despite feelings of chaos, destruction and irrevocability imposed by the charred interior after the fire, Borghouts becomes fascinated by the beauty of the devastation left behind. Faced with these conflicting feelings Borghouts starts to capture the house carefully. Rarely a subject emerges so unexpectedly, so disturbing, yet so obvious to a photographer like this event. Her intuitive decision to take photos at that moment, under these circumstances, has led to an extraordinary and moving series of images. The poignant but at the same time beautiful images are brought together in The House, an exhibition with beautiful black colourprints on mat Photo Rag paper.
    This special exhibition can now be seen in Antwerp for the first time and a new book will be published.
