Boldies (M), set 2
Thérèse Zoekende and Patrick Koster – Collaborative Works.
Boldies (M), set 2, book of 6 pages, collaboration with comtemporary visual artist Thérèse Zoekende, 1999
Boldies is the title of a collaborative project by Thérèse Zoekende and Patrick Koster that resulted in a set of approximately 46 portrait photos. The computer-processed portraits are cut-outs from photos in which characteristic poses of fictional/imaginary superheroes are re-enacted by them. In the photos, their heads are bald and their different expressive facial expressions mirror each other. The photos were taken in their former Bijlmer home Koningshoef 6, and can therefore be counted as work that was made in the period designated by them as ‘Bijlmer Years 1989-1997’.
Poem included in the book:
Even as broken mirror, which the glass
In every fragment multiplies; and makes
A thousand images of one that was,
The same, and still more, the more it breaks.
