Stilleven is the collective name for several still lifes whose individual titles refer
to each object in the respective still life. The objects from the various still lifes
can be recombined into a new still life, as long as the title is adapted correspondingly.
As the number of objects in the still life increases, so does the length of the title;


Stilleven met steen en steen, de anderen en de rest (2015)

As demonstrated by the title, Henry's fles, or ‘bottle’, was an addition to stilleven met dempers.
Henry's fles was created during the Round the Corner exhibition held at Maison Grégoire:
a modernist house in Brussels designed by famed Belgian architect Henry Van de Velde.
According to one of the contractors present in the house during the prospection for the exhibition,
a wine bottle was used to round the corners of the interior. The bottle, with its sharp edges,
is a play on this contractor’s statement. Made from plaster, the yellow hues of Henry's fles
are a referent to the newly restored beige walls of Maison Grégoire.
