Edwin Janssen (1961)

Edwin Janssen

One of the nicest artist books i acquired recently was the book Edwin Janssen made for his van Abbemuseum exhibition in 1988. Book contains fold outs, original tipped in photographs . extra pages, see through pages. Book is published by one of the leading publishers from that era ” Bébert” and i can ot recommend it enough for all serious collectors of artists books.

Edwin Janssen studied at the Academy of Arts, Rotterdam and Ateliers ’63, Haarlem. His first exhibition, in 1985, was at the WP Gallery, Rotterdam. He has recently made installations for the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, the Stadsgalerij, Heerlen and the Museum voor Hedendaagse Kunst in Ghent. The work combines images and objects from commercial and personal sources to comment on the transient qualities and clichés of his youth and family life.
