Maurice Scheltens en Liesbeth Abbenes
hardcover box containing 7 thick card plates
31 x 41 x 5 cm
English / Japanese
The art photography couple Maurice Scheltens and Liesbeth Abbenes have worked unwaveringly for nearly fifteen years carving out their identity as image makers. Whether commissioned by brands or magazines, their oeuvre is persistently autonomous, wherein only the actual characteristics of the objects in front of their camera steer their creative process.
For Epoi, a new genuine leather bag brand made in Japan, Scheltens & Abbenes created a series of six photographic works using the leather parts of bags yet to be made. Printed on large-format, ultra-thick card and presented as individual plates, the images strongly follow in the tradition of Calder’s mobiles.
