His new publication, Wesley Meuris – Exhibition Types (2017) encompasses the consistently expanding “strategy” of FEAK and deals with Meuris’ whole oeuvre going from Zoological to Explanatory Structures – informative exhibition models to posters, entry tickets or air circulation and heat sources in exposition rooms – e.g.: Entrance Kit for Sculpture Garden (an installation at the Middelheim outdoor museum in Antwerp – 2010) and Panoramic Rotunda (an installation at MAC’s Grand Hornu – 2017).
All of these projects, whether sculptures, installations or collages, are based on a classification systems going from Zoological Classification (a collection of parameters which are decisive for the architecture of an animal cage with a maximum comfort for the spectators) to C.C.C.A.I. – The World’s most important Artists – a data collection which explores the artist’s life in depth which is a publication in response to the eponymous exhibition in Galery Art & Essai – Rennes – 2010.
Pictures of the recent solo exhibition in Mac’s Grand Hornu (BE) Modèles d’exposition and the solo exhibition Scenes of Engagements, running until the end of November of this year in Centre d’Art Contemporain – Amilly (FR), are provided in the book as well.
