Mimesis

This project started with my fascination for covers of jazz albums. During my research into this, I came from one subject to the other. For example, I went from jazz covers to the book 'Jazz' by Henri Matisse and from stained glass to the work of Theo van Doesburg. From conceptual art I ended up with the mimesis theory.

The mimesis theory is a theory based on the idea that art is an imitation of reality. This topic interested me so much that I subsequently made a publication about various artists who are linked to this theory. The design of the publication contains many references to the mimesis theory. The cover, for example, consists of the word mimesis that is so often copied, or rather imitated, that it becomes almost illegible.
