Product Description

It is this selection of eighty notations and drawings on coasters which was produced in the Kempens Informatieboek to tie in with the exhibition. They constitute a (small) part of the endless ‘archive trail’ which accounts for a large part of Geys’ oeuvre. The remarkable thing about this work is how two seemingly ordinary enough activities like ‘drinking a cup of coffee’ and ‘reading the newspaper’ result in a meaningful object; how a mundane cup of coffee is linked to ‘reading the world’, the maze-like complexity of major world problems and seeming trivialities which find their way into the daily newspaper.
