Constant. Les trois espaces
This is the first comprehensive publication on the Dutch painter, Constant Nieuwenhuys, who played a decisive role in the European artistic life, as much through his work as a painter and sculptor as through his theoretical reflection. The period after his New Babylon project is a reconquest of painting in its means as in its ends. Witness and historian of the COBRA movement, close friend of Constant, Jean-Clarence Lambert continues his critical and poetic study of contemporary art with this new publication. He analyzes the oscillations of creativity in three acts, the metamorphoses of the space represented, as well as the role of art and the artist in our society today.
