About the Book
Irene Vlak is a Netherlands-born, mixed-media artist. Her large-scale installation pieces are created from commonplace household and recycled objects. The results are modern yet familiar; drawing onlookers in with re-contextualized everyday materials that help us see the world in new ways. Vlak's book “Irene Vlak Redepicts” shows a close-up of the components of her installation by the same name. Each colorful page presents a mirror decorated with plastic bottle pieces from the installation, accompanied by a description detailing the history and costuming of the dance it represents.
