When I was a student at the K.A.S.K. in Ghent, the confrontation with the work of Joseph Beuys was a revelation.
A stroll through Joseph Beuys’ multifaceted oeuvre made me think about his vision of life, his attitude as an artist, his sources of inspiration, art education, art, the art world, sculptures, drawings, etc.
The freedom of his drawings fascinated me: the image and the medium on which he worked. The registrations that he made on a blackboard – during his performances/lectures – inspired me.
To me, diary entries are drawings of my thoughts. They form a breeding ground from which new images can emerge and grow. Like an archivist, they store my ideas. Like an archaeologist, I can go in search of frozen moments: reflections on my life and world events.
