Article for Le Labo des Héritiers
The exhibition 'Le Labo des Héritiers' at museum Grand Hornu-Images
in Belgium investigates the creative family. Through the work of four well-known architects, artists and designers, it questions ways of dealing with creative legacy.
I wrote article for the exhibition catalogue about one of these four families, the Bakker-Van Leersum's. Guided by the lives and works of jewellery designer Emmy van Leersum, product and jewellery designer Gijs Bakker
, and their son and product designer Aldo Bakker
I tried to analyze the families' way of dealing with artistic inheritance.
