The book has its origin in the ‘3x3xMe’ project by Gerrit De Bremme.
In 2019 he started a project to make screen prints based on seductive pictures of non-model women.
The goal was simple: show that art does not care about weight and size like fashion.
Beauty is beauty no matter which supposed standards are set by the fashion industry.
The project resulted in 13 sets of three prints per participant.
Fellow artist and poet akim a.j. willems was asked to write a poem in Dutch for each set of prints.
His words take you by the hand and guide you through the artwork.
The collaboration results in an 80 page art & poetry book in Dutch of which only 50 copies will be printed.
