Book launch Saturday, April 13, 3PM, in the presence of the artist.
Arnaud (b. 1977), is a versatile artist: he makes drawings, ceramic work, and writes poetry but is also active as a dancer and performer. In each of these media, his work excels in concealment, omission, slowing down, pausing, omission or stilling.
The power of Arnaud's drawings lies mostly in the space he does not draw. The drawings are drawn with a very soft pencil and therefore look very fragile.
Arnaud handles his media in a very sensitive way. His work comes about with a great deal of concentration and patience.
For this book, the publisher made a selection of self-portraits and drawings of people from Arnaud's surroundings. The text will be written by Pierre Muylle, with an introduction by curator Simon Delobel.
In collaboration with Kunstwerkplaats de Zandberg.
