Jan Henderikse (born 1937 in Delft, the Netherlands) called a 1996 exhibition of his ready-mades Acheiropoieta (literally ‘not handmade’), an antique term for a particular type of icon that originates miraculously. As early as 1961-62, the artist’s works summarized or anticipated major contemporary trends in art based on employing everyday materials in the tradition of the ready-made: assemblage; montage; the serial stringing together of commonplace objects such as corks, coins, and wrappers; the purism of the Zero movement; echoes of Nouveau Realisme; and Pop Art. Henderikse augmented his material basis in the seventies and eighties with conceptual artists’ books, photographic series, and installations comprising ‘ready-found’ photographic material and films. This monograph lists major works from public and private collections for the first time, thus enabling renewed access to the artist’s complex multimedia oeuvre.
