Breasts, silver mushrooms, a melancholy fir tree, giant slippers, a water tower with a crazy red wig, pricks dangling from a string, milk jugs: these are a few of the ten works that Maria Roosen has chosen as her favourite top ten at the moment. From this subjective choice of ten works emerges a fabric of visual and textual narratives about their genesis, links with other work, pendants, associations, sources, ideas and mentality. This large book Monster connects these key works and threads with one another with a profusion of images of Roosen’s work and texts by Hanne Hagenaars and Wim Van Mulders. more
