“Last year I abstained
this year I devour

without guilt
which is also an art”

From Fata Morgana Series by André Gelpke, 1965-2004 “Fata Morgana” suggests a fundamental relationship between photography and eroticism, their establishment in the finiteness, their inconvertible striving after an eternity of a moment that consciousness simultaneously fulfils and obliterates in the triumph over time; a promise that ultimately only death is able to honour. The pushing of the shutter release is like an orgasm “une petite mort”. -Martin JaeggiAlso

Two collages sent to Jacqueline Nonkels by Marcel Mariën, 1938
From the Jacqueline Nonkels Collection


Jacqueline Nonkels was René and Georgette Magritte’s neighbour and it did not take long for her to become friends with Georgette. Jacqueline thus received various documents from the couple as well as photographs that immortalized the Magrittes in their day-to-day lives. It was through René and Georgette that Jacqueline Nonkels met Marcel Mariën. Between December 1937 and August 1938, Jacqueline and Marcel exchanged a series of passionate and surrealist letters. The letters were accompanied by the artist’s first collages and contained the germs of various elements and themes that would later find their way into his work.
