statement (english)

the juxtapositions (2022)

rearrange the letters from ‘cell’ to ‘chill’ and a new characteristic of the letter ‘c’ appears. these drawings are such rearrangements: each time they unlock a different characteristic of the parts. the whole of knowledge is greater than the sum of the parts.

choice of context and choice of material, coloured pencil or silverpoint steer the interpretation. knowing this is just as important as the conveyed information itself.

at the basis of each drawing is astonishment at current themes such as displacement, inequality and climate problems. each current theme consists of new images of historical or timeless counterparts. in this way it gains weight or is put into perspective.
