lopend project: De brieftekening
Can drawings be letters? Is there anything like an epistolary drawing? Drawing and writing both originate in the physical gesture of the hand. Letters and drawings are seemingly direct and intimite ways of leaving behind thoughts and feelings on a piece of paper. As such, they don't necessarily figure as art. But quite often, both the drawing and the letter have been intended as a work of art. Keeping this in mind, this project wants to balance on the edge of fact and fiction, daily life and art, past and present, the analogue and the digital. A distinct quality of a letter is the fact it is adressed to someone, a quality drawings don't necessary share. Althought there exists something in the forgotten folds of art history 'il disegno per amore e non per obrigo'.
