(Wittgenstein: (Says W) 2)
"In 1974, after finishing my studies at the Royal Academy of Antwerp, I started reading Wittgenstein and the books of Marquis de Sade, and I took out a subscription for The New Scientist. It confused me that I didn’t encounter any women in the art history books whose example I could follow. Unconsciously, I suffered from the contradictions that society constantly imposed on me in all its facets, and also from the fact that much is being concealed. At that time I made a lot of work on PVC with abstract shapes and quotes on the future and meaning, in luminous colours, especially those visible only in UV light. These works are an impetus for developing my own logic."
