This book features four essays on Aldo Bakker’s fascination with ‘pouring vessels’ as well as an interview with the artist. Bakker has the ability to transform such humble, everyday objects – things we often forgetto notice. He brings them back into focus and frees them of their primary function in order to present themas indefinable and enigmatic forms. The essays in this volume – by Glenn Adamson, Hans den Hartog Jager, Chris Reinewald and Gert Staal – take Bakker’s jugs as their point of departure, but each one moves beyond the objects themselves to discuss his work more generally in the contexts of art, design, literature and philosophy.
