Guy Rombouts


Materials: Paper

Collection: Courtesy Annie Gentils Gallery.

For Middle Gate II Guy Rombouts creates a hat alphabet. The folded hats are made of unprinted newspaper – once intended for the Geel newspaper Nieuwsblad van Geel – from the old French standard paper size, a half Colombier. Each hat is folded different; 13 times a fold sharper. Repeating the process in the opposite direction. A letter in the corresponding shape of Rombouts’ ‘Azart’ alphabet is attached to each hat: ‘angular’ for ‘A’, ‘bairnsteel’ for ‘B’ and so on. The hats are presented on the chairs in the church.
