Things To Hold On To

Groupshow at Netwerk Aalst (BE) / With work from Marleen Limbourg and Yana Barrez.

The cen­tral theme of the exhi­bi­tion arose from an emo­tional con­fronta­tion with the mon­u­men­tal waste bales in Veurne’s Spinnery. We read poetry and see imagery in the beauty, fragility and, at the same time, char­ac­ter of the com­pressed sisal. 

  • Marleen Limbourg, con­cep­tual artist, knots Waste to Meaning.
  • Iwein De Keyzer, pho­tog­ra­pher, mean­ders along paths of the mind.
  • Yana Barrez, chore­o­g­ra­pher, makes con­trar­ian move­ments to the cadence of tex­tile machines
  • Music by Sam Huge, Video by Dominique Hoornaert.

Desolate

With Desolate’ Iwein gath­ers visu­al anec­dotes from street scenes much like a farmer picks pears. Not too soon, not too late, but know­ing exact­ly when an image is ripe and juicy. His images are snap­shots of that one sec­ond, spurred on by a sur­pris­ing stim­u­lus. He abstracts street scenes, turn­ing them into des­o­late places with a smile, and records real­i­ty as if sud­den­ly trip­ping over it, encoun­ter­ing it when no one was looking.

Do what you will with the chronol­o­gy of this book. The pho­tos may be eas­i­ly removed from the book to adorn a dress­er, man­tel­piece or any wall you like. A book indeed wor­thy of fram­ing. Design by We Are Superset. Text by Mien De Vriendt. For more infor­ma­tion about this pub­li­ca­tion click on Buy’ in the menu.
