After his death, the house of the painter Marten
Melsen (1870-1947) was inhabited by his daughters. The sisters continued
to live there until they were well into their eighties. They kept the
house intact, as their father left it behind.The photos of these
authentic interiors offer a view to a time that is not too far behind
us, but yet has ended. Through her art painters education, and also due
to a beautiful light, Karin Borghouts knows how to unveil this
photogenic environment with a special and empathic sensitivity.
Karin Borghouts is an artist photographer best known for her series The house, photos of her burned parental house.
The recent paintings by Mieke Teirlinck depict a great sensitivity to traumatic memories.

ARCHITECTURE PHOTOGRAPHY IN ANTWERP
Karin Borghouts photographed a social housing complex designed by HappelCornelisseVerhoeven Architecten (HCVA). North of the centre of Antwerp lies
the former docks area of Cadix. The district developed in the 19th and
early 20th centuries and consists of a heterogeneous block structure of
warehouses, tenements and row housing. During the coming years all this
will gradually be transformed into an urban live-work environment.
Together with Stephen Taylor Architects, Happel Cornelisse Verhoeven
designed two corner buildings containing a total of 60 dwellings, a car
park and a child care centre for the client Woonhaven.
