In Illo Tempore?


‘In Illo Tempore?’ is not a story, neither is it a realistic representation. The visual elements, which can be both figurative and abstract, are brought together in a context that can be seen as a force field or as a puzzle rather than as a representation of a concrete space or of a story. The silver thread is the ascending and descending of an image within the image, from print to print, so that an idea of time and a kind of contrapuntal structure arises, in which various references and symbols are interwoven. The combination and location of recurring forms, figures and symbols offer at each reading  a different ‘text’, which Johan van Cauwenberge translated into short, poetic captions.   To create these poems we have been building on the old 'emblemata'. Work from 1998.
