Two exhibitions: Wij Twee Samen & (On)voltooid Verleden Tijd
When the father of illustrator Ephameron (Eva Cardon) began to suffer from a form of dementia that affected his ability to use language, she started to make drawings about this. She documented the impact of the illness over a period of ten years and collected this in the book Wij twee samen. In the exhibition, we enter a labyrinth made up of the original collages – a story told in pictures, in which words gradually lose their meaning. Playful, confrontational images draw us into the long process of letting go.
(On)voltooid verleden tijd
To complement her exhibition Wij twee samen , Ephameron asked others to illustrate their ideas about the theme of dementia and put together six writer/illustrator duos. With work by Arnon Grunberg & Ephameron, Roderik Six & Isabelle Vandenabeele, Bart Van Nuffelen & Goele Dewanckel, Peter Holvoet-Hansen & Frederik Vanden Stock, Stijn Vranken & Martha Verschaffel, Maartje Wortel & Wide Vercnocke. In this exhibition, writers and illustrators jointly push the boundaries of visual storytelling.
Illustrator Ephameron (Eva Cardon) is the curator of a jamsession between illustrators and musicians on Wednesday 7 Octobre. With: Colin H. Van Eeckhout, Bert Dockx en Nina Boaz. Read more
