Idea Code 18408

This monograph on the Belgian artist Leo Copers comprises a survey of 50 years of artistic practice (1968–2018). It shows how Copers has continually sought ways to connect seemingly incompatible elements, such as gas and fire, or water and electricity. This tension has been an essential element of his work up to the present day. The book is arranged in themed sections – early works, gold, flowers, fairy tales, site-specific, weapons – in an attempt to bring structure to an eclectic and highly diverse oeuvre. Hilde Teerlinck recorded a series of conversations with the artist which offer a personal insight into his work. Ory Dessau and Philippe Van Cauteren contribute illuminating texts.
