"You can only make out a muffled splash as your ear drums get immersed in water and you sink to the bottom of that tiled pit. The sudden movement has taken everyone by surprise. Surrounded by liquid properties and chlorine gas, sodium hypochlorite of liquid bleach, granulated calcium hypochlorite, lithium hypochlorite or chlorinated isocyanurates. You can hardly hear the faded laughter that hovers over what looks like a pool, but there is a sudden burning sensation, a sting in both of your eyes when you eventually surface. One can save on chemical costs by adding chlorine to the water after dark — during the day some will be lost to sunlight, they say. The way the capitalist system is immunizing itself, the scientist as a secret weapon is less and less useful. But the pain is delicious."

(excerpt from "Strip – A Lonely Figure Dressed in Angles" by Oliver Klimpel)


"A work of Colin enters your house. Now it’s your turn to talk. Now it’s time for each of the paintings to start living their own life, to let go, to disappear in the whole,
that place where trees talk to each other and cosmic dust gets vacuum-cleaned by our little Zeitgeists. Rain falls into lakes.
In the end, one could ask how the paintings created Colin, who is again finding his space and time for another game of detachment, transcendence and language."

(excerpt from "A work of Colin hangs in your house" by Dries Van de Velde)
