Kunst op de Koffie 2019





2019 — 2019

Lee Eun Young made an installation with pleated skirts, with various newspapers. Foreign newspapers have their own language and structure and therefore they are linked to specific cultures.

The texts can no longer be read, only a small part is visible. But the total installation tells a lot about her ideas and theories, just like those of the French philosopher Gilles Deleuze. He wrote the book “Le pli” (the Fold).

His theories are connected to the baroque philosopher Leibniz. In short: In the view of Deleuze/Leibniz, the fold is a projection screen. Our perception is a projection on a folded screen in our head, the dark room. That means that we see only a part of reality.

“Art is not about forms, it is about capturing forces linked with sensation: a force that must exercise on a body…”

Gilles Deleuze
