Belgisch Spleen: Santo/Santa, 1992
(Belgian Spleen: Santo/Santa)
"In 1992, I collected all the ideas and reflections that I wrote down from 1974 up till then in a Brepols bookkeeping agenda for income and expenditure. I classified all the notes per day in the month, to find out whether the occurrence of certain spontaneous thoughts is subject to the specific moments in a year. I hoped to discover an evolution or system in the seemingly chaotic storm of thoughts and inspiration. The overwriting and listing inspired me to work on a series of works about the struggle between concept, language and image."
