DRAW ME WORK
They used to be white
Blue collar, white collar. They used to live in parallel worlds. The blue ones had hands on grease, fell off the ladders any minute and learned to resist the dangers of what seemed to be the real world, while the white ones worked safe and tidy in surreal skyscrapers. Reward guaranteed.
But times have been flying. Today, the white ones get frighteningly threatened by everyday’s crash and clash, they turn orange and green and henceforth have to wear their armor, boots and survival goggles day-and-night forever.
Nothing’s certain besides collapse.
Life seems and endless screw.
HOW TO FILM A POET
In july of 2011, Ali Kazma presented in Paris a show entitled with this question: “How to film a poet?”
Kris Van Assche replies in this issue of Londerzeel : by filming work, showing work, making work. My work is my poetry. I grew up in my father’s garage: there, aesthetics meets function and the screw writes the poem.
