Work Description

Collection of collages.


""This book might become the most hilarious book published in 2016. Dutch artist Chantal Rens (1981) made collages showing all kinds of animals carrying on their back glasses of different alcoholic beverages. Simple, yet very well executed.""
Edie Peters (PhotoQ Bookshop, Amsterdam)

"Maybe the most unnecessary book of 2016, but definitely the most funny one I came across. Chantal Rens is a Dutch artist that uses photography often as a starting point for her collages. In ‘You run around town like a fool and you think that it’s groovy’, she combines images of animals balancing a glass with spirits on them. You could ask yourself: Why, but this is exactly why the book is deadly funny. Numerous combinations of images, definitely never seen before. I would highly recommend this book that also probably the longest title of a photo book produced in 2016."
Erik Kessels (Photobooks of 2016, PHOTOBOOKSTORE Magazine)
