Most of Guy’s work follows that paper trail, but in 2009 he shortly switched to leather, as in “chopping up a gorgeous leather bag”. Belgian luxury brand Delvaux collaborated with Guy for their Studio Delvaux, naming their project with him Paperworld meets Delvaux. For this exhibition, Guy cut up Delvaux’s famous Brillant bag.
Later, in 2015, he published his first book Paperworld, which takes you behind the scenes of all things Guy Leclef.
Exhibition ‘Poetic Recycling’ will run from 1 April until 18 April at Schutterhofstraat 55, Antwerp. For more information, visit Forwart’s website.
