Tomas Bachot (BE, 1989) & Roland Deketelaere (BE, 1989)
STYLO’S, GOLVEN EN DE E19 (2022)
In 2021, Tomas Bachot becomes enchanted by the work of Roland Deketelaere. Using endless variations on the same theme, Deketelaere offers the viewer an insight into his state of mind – without relying on any familiar systems of language. Everyone is free to offer their own interpretation of the work. In the months leading up to Watou 2022, the two artists have a long-distance conversation that should actually be impossible. This interaction between both artists shows that communication has a wider scope than we usually give it credit for. The physical result of this months-long dialogue – the films, the letters, the sheets of wallpaper – is the basis of their installation at De Lovie castle.
