What “I” or, For That Matter, “You” Really Are, 2017

Video 09:16 min

What “I” or, For That Matter, “You” Really Are, a video made during a summer sojourn in a large empty hotel in high alpine territory, is part of an ongoing investigation by Hanne Van Dyck into the human relationship with nature. Facing solitude, silence and isolation, her artistic registry and agency became a meticulous balance act of applying oneself to an environment, a landscape, and to make deductions from that application. Threatened with becoming a detached island of signification, Van Dyck reached out to the natural scene on site.

“While instead of making a silent retreat after such deceiving appointment with a mountain, to make a return to business as usual, so to speak, Van Dyck seems to overcome these initial hesitations and tensions by maximizing a poetic resourcefulness in her work.”                             – Niekolaas Lekkerkerk
