KOEN THEYS: MEISJES & FILOSOFEN/GIRLS & PHILOSOPHERS --EEN VIDEO-INSTALLATIE VOOR TWE PROJECTOREN/A VIDEO INSTALLATION FOR TWO PROJECTORS. bkSM, beelldende kunst Strombeck/Mechelen, 2006. 64 pp. with numerous col. ills. 29 x 23 cm. Bilingual in Dutch and English.
On screens measuring 3 meters high and 12 meters wide, "Girls and Philosophers" presents, in the words of Max Borka, "a dual world view, with parts which are simultaneously each other's mirror image and opposite. One is populated by the Girls, the other by the Philosophers. The zone in between is a bit like a magnetic field. It is not only powered by the contrasts between these two groups, but also by the gazes of the characters that populate them. Not only do the many girls look the philosophers right in the eyes, and vice versa, but the viewer is also aware of being watched by each of them while looking at them. Caught in a web of gazes, the viewer is (as it were) forced to take a position. From a spectator he is turned into an actor." Volume is in very good condition.
