DRAW ME A MAN…
He was born in Londerzeel. To each his own desert: under the tropics, in a town centre, in the Sahara or at Londerzeel. The path is not mapped out, autopilot does not work any more, there is sand in their boots and the crossing lasts a lifetime. So, draw me a man… or men rather, warriors, an army of angels inspired by Arthur Rimbaud, with pens as their weapon of choice. The pen – when the poet is not on strike – is used to bypass solitude, to take one’s mind off emptiness, to suggest a path, to tame the world. Tame? asks the Little Prince. And the fox to reply,” to tame… something too often forgotten. It means to create ties.”* Ties between him and other artists, between him and men, between him and you. Londerzeel.
*(The Little Prince, Saint Exupéry)
