Lieve, (Dear,) is part of a Més-aventures video compilation including moving and narrative images. Attempts to appropriate, impersonate and understand phenomena that move me.
Lieve, is an ode to the written word (the grown-up little scribble that simply is voice, vision and venture all at once) and to handwriting (the spirited and deeply personal deed that feeds the layered and founded dialogue I yearn for). Lieve, is the visualization of a quest for a very fine element of handwriting: care-full–ness; a specific kind of liveliness filled with care.
A sketch1: an entry, a direction, a gesture, a sign, both planned and spontaneous. 1 definition inspired by the book ‘the voice of drawing’
