Seeing a rainbow (through a window that isn’t there)

30-05-2015

Dries Segers will present his first artist book ‘Seeing a rainbow (through a window that isn’t there)’ at Tique on 30 May at 19 hrs.

‘Seeing a rainbow (through a window that isn’t there)’ is a “handbook” to contemplate the modern, industrialized landscape. A scenery that is constructed by standard-formats: colors, language, architecture, traffic, nature,… . Dries Segers offers you a way to handle that dull landscape in a lyric manner.

‘Seeing a rainbow (…)’ shows, next to the elementary beauty in the basal, as well the extraordinary. Everything we see is constructed by humans, we take everything as truth, normal, a grey zone. By using the metaphor of a rainbow (light + water – which everyone adores) Segers applies the color spectrum on what we are tired of seeing.

For this occasion, Charlotte Van den Broeck will recite some of her poems, selected by Dries Segers.
