5 proposals for a Sculpture

Visual artist Nikolaas Demoen debutes as a poet with the collection, tamelijk.

The texts describe images that have fallen between the drawing board and the living room. And are recovered via the detour of language. This creates phrases that evoke a longing and an expectation and distant halfway-lands. The untitled poems bend in the reality of the artist’s studio and the fiction of life and emerge in a transition zone between inspiration, work and boredom.

A constant in the poems is the walk, the being en route in the head and with the limbs. Repetitive images lay out a path through the book and could be experienced as a sort of breathing in-and-out.

The layout of the publication, provided by the artist, emphasizing the distance between the reciprocal sentences and words and plays within the space on the paper, which forms a mirror of the exhibition space.
