On a daily basis, Gijs Assmann sends his lover, H., a handmade collage by post. Assmann started this ritual in November 2009. These collages are a daily exercise for Assmann, which give us an insight in the dazzling head of the artist. Furthermore, the collages show us that love is versatile, and more complex than we sometimes tell ourselves. Assmann shows us that love is not static and clear-cut, but that it is alive and should never be considered as a self-evident truth. For this publication H. selected her favourite ‘declarations of love’. Bookpresentation January 20th 2019 in Stedelijk Museum Schiedam. Since 2009 Assmann has been sending collages to his girlfriend on a daily basis. For this publication she selected her 332 favorite ones.
