Since devoting himself to art in the late nineties, MichaŽl Borremans (*1963 in Geraardsbergen, Belgium) has created a strikingly mature body of work that has captured international attention. The disparate spaces he imagines in his paintings, drawings, sculptures, and films are based on an uncanny sense of dislocation and often unsettling beauty. Rendered in complex palettes and exquisite techniques, Borremans's works embrace a rich legacy of artistic progenitors yet remin firmly anchores in the present. Featuring nearly two hundred works created over a fourteen-year period, this large-scale publication includes many works not previously reproduced in books or catalogues, offering the most complete overview of Borremans's oeuvre to date. In addition to an interview with the artist, it includes fifty-nine highly individual contributions by writers, curators, filmmakers, and musicians who address selected works by the artist.
