Fabric, paint

Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven adapts two books of fabric samples. On each patch she combines a drawing of a woman in a voluptuous, seductive pose with such words as: ‘action’ or ‘conduire le mental’. These images of naked pin-ups are combined with concepts from widely diverse contexts, such as advanced technology, anatomy or psychology. The connection between the words and the images, which appear to have nothing in common, disrupts the usual and familiar meaning of these words and images.
