Lidwien Van De Ven
seule la main qui efface peut écrire
HC 21 x 28 cm.
The title of this book by Dutch artist Lidwien van de Ven is a quote from French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard. A few years after World War II, Godard spoke these words to express his thoughts about the incapacity of art and film to discuss the Holocaust. In her own introverted and intense black-and-white films and photographs, van de Ven concerns herself with ethical matters and questions about what an image can and cannot tell us: about how the visible relates to the invisible, and about the processes of registration, perception, concealing, and revealing.
