ANITA

Vincent Geyskens – Bernard Dewulf

In the art book ANITA, Vincent Geyskens and Bernard Dewulf experiment with the book as means of artistic expression. The visual work of Vincent Geyskens (collages, drawings and other visual material) runs through the book in interaction with the words and text of Bernard Dewulf.

In their contrary, sometimes raw, often inappropriate sensuality, Geyskens’ collages present themes such as: skin, fascism, infection, eroticism, artificial light, pornography, androgyny, the body as experiment and myth, visual culture as the original of a double-entendre fiction.

The result is a collection of ‘new images’ with a large, contrary, simultaneously vulnerable and sometimes aggressive sensuality, consisting of a wide range of materials – from clippings to veneered wood, from paint to plastic.

Geyskens is very attentive to the materiality that he is working with: tears, scratches, spray trails, folds, etc., build the work up and, at the same time, expose them. Those intrusions express the physical reality of the often erotic images in a brutal way. Bernard Dewulf’s search is for a counterweight in language to this process. He does that in the full knowledge that the materiality and the tactility of words are essentially different from those of the images. In these texts, the writer turns his usual sensuality inside out and allows the tone of the collages to protect his language.
