Rustine is the result of the photographic works by Simon Vansteenwinckel and the music of The Three Oldmen’s Birds (Mathias Van Eecloo) initiated by IIKKI, between September 2021 and July 2022. The complete project works in two physical imprints: the book and the disc (cd).
It should be experienced in different ways : the book read alone, the disc listened to alone, the book and the disc read and listened to together.
