Bozar Brussel – De Ateliers 1994

“What interests me are transition points where different interests are facing each other. Such as gas stations or peripheral areas in which countryside, city, relaxation and industry come together. Where meaning is released, transferred or reformed”

Newspaper snippet caught in a bucket  1998

10 liter transparent polyester poured into a bucket containing a floating snippet of a newspaper. After it has been solidified, the polyester has been taken out and presented.

“People asking me if the snippet represents a special day or occasion. No, certainly not, it’s about a meaningless subject at a meaningless moment, but fixed for ever”

A promise of happiness 2008

Maddy Arkesteyn took to the streets  of Molenbeek for this series of photographs. The things are beyond order or control and so are momentarily liberated. They are landscapes which have been formed and changed by the wind. The objects are abandoned to their fate and need to be cleared away as quickly as possible. But it is this brief moment of being left over and left behind that gives them the chance to escape. In the space of that uncontrollable moment, the sense of freedom is tangible.
