As said before, it does not matter where one is.
However one has to make sure to steer directly into the
impossible. Of course one has to keep the balance on
the way, though only under the single condition that the
balance is made less safe. Less and less safe.
A few years ago I noticed that something was about to change within my artistic practise.
I decided to frame this point of departure within a set project: 'On a Stroll with ...'
And as my work is so closely linked to literature and authors, I needed a strong partner ‘in crime’.
I found my unbeknownst collaborator in Virginia Woolf and her astounding body of work.
I am intrigued by her novels, themes and literary vision that took her a lifetime to explore and develop.
Virginia Woolf was an explorer and made me want to 'go out there' and gain new ground myself.
Adhering strictly to the chronological order of her nine novels I found myself precariously up and in the air.
My project 'On a Stroll with Mrs. Woolf' has now come to an end and Hello to:
'WOOLF I - IX'.
The book launch of the documentation 'Woolf I - IX' coincided with the groups' first presentation at Collect18, Chelsea, London.
98pp, with an introductory essay and 1:1 reproductions of the bindings, background information, and text excerpts.
