Elective Affinities – Jasper Rigole & Egon van Herreweghe

Two artists in a temporary studio make use of a photocopy machine and a pile of old newspapers to create a constant stream of newly assembled images. This is the starting point of Elective Affinities, a multiyear project created by Jasper Rigole and Egon Van Herreweghe, which has so far appeared in four editions. A visual dialogue arises during the process, in which the artists respond to each other’s suggestions by adding images, altering existing assemblies or by responding to threads that have opened up during the process.
