/12 River

Dieter De Lathauwer


Between Lisbon and the Algarve runs a river.
Parallel to this southward trail of the river Sado, are the coastline, a highway and a regional way. All four running down from the capital to one of the most touristic coasts in Europe. A documentary approach served as starting point but changed quickly into a more poetic process. Eventually the only thing that matters is intuition and yourself. Mental landscapes?

Landscapes as blankets wrapped around you.
Interiors passages to escape reality.

For the exhibition in 44Gallery a limited edition ‘pooklet’ was published.
A combination of poster becoming booklet and vice versa by means of folding and cutting.
Offset printed, individually numbered and signed. More info on my website.”
