Product Description

This artist’s book by Henk Visch is a compilation of images that can be looked at and assessed for their truthfulness, or lack of it. Called Exactly how I remembered it, the book brings together three types of work. Firstly, there are the photographs of figurative sculptures, such as Too late for the grave (2006), Lonely feelings on landing (2010) and Untitled (1983). Secondly, there are several recent drawings, or fragments of drawings, mainly of human bodies and faces. And thirdly, there is the series entitled Exactly how I remembered it (2008) that comprises sculptures made out of wire, pearls, beads, threads, buttons and rope. Most of the works are standing, upright therefore, and yet they are not reaching for the sky and they are never monumental; they look like sketches, human figures in-the-making, created by a sculptor who, because of circumstances – poverty perhaps or a shortage of raw materials – or simply out of ingenuity or boredom, finds himself having to make sculptures with unusual, thin materials, rather like someone painting a landscape with a pencil.
