IT DIDN’T TAKE ME LONG TO REALIZE THE ESCAPE, ONCE AGAIN,  WOULDN’T WORK

This work is simple in its elaboration: made in one afternoon on an island with a turbulent history. The work follows a clear and linear course in which the misty afternoon slowly slips into the darkness.

'It didn’t take me long to realize the escape once again wouldn’t work' by Dieter De Lathauwer became a reflection on place and walking as a solution for inner problems. It was a failed attempt to escape. Started as a known approach to the landscape. Ended with the landscape turning out to be an obstacle. This intimate and poetic book is about accepting failure and weakness, turning it into something new.
