Guest/Host, Gift and Ghost

Fellow HISK resident Antoine Goossens, who’s working for Mertens Frames, texted me with the question if I was interested in having some frames. Subsequently he sent me a picture of the bubble wrapped frames with a post-it stuck to it, reading ‘cadeau’. I told him I wanted the frames if he would leave the post-it on. Upon arrival he told me the frames used to hold works from Jacqueline Mesmaeker. I decided to write her a letter explaining this coincidence and to ask her permission to add the frames with the post-it to the collection of ‘Thisappearance’.

3 wooden frames, Post-it
