We're very happy to be hosting the launch and exhibition of Marie Dhaese and Reindert Vermeire their first monograph 'Tell me I'm pretty so I can sleep at night'. Two authors, a photographer and a writer. He in love with her, she in love with a woman.
The project tells the story of an unrequited love and documents how the feeling of desire can overpower one. It's part of every human being, wanting to be desired but at the same time the denial of it. The force and inexhaustible, suffocating energy, penned down in diary fragments in the course of four years. His pen, their story with the motive of the obsessive force of the unreachable muse pitted against the pure urge of wanting to be desired. Her pictures, purely instinctive, as a metaphor of his longing and the texts that spring from it.
The book will be available for purchase at the opening and can be pre ordered by sending us a PM or via [email protected]
There will be beers by the Brussels Beer Project available.
Opening starts at 19:00.
