Karin Borghouts photography  - Mieke Teirlinck paintings

Karin Borghouts shows a new series of photos: ‘A painter’s house’.
 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.

Cadix Antwerp, social housing by HappelCornelisseVerhoeven Architecten, photo © Karin Borghouts, 2018

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. 
HCVA is nominated as the architect of the year in the Netherlands
