Hinter den Hügeln

Andy Hope 1930

«Our horses galloped along the river banks, as if to flee the human eye.»

Comte de Lautréamont


A fictional autobiography in storyboard form is a way for Andy Hope 1930 to question the relationship between figuration and abstraction. Throughout 29 drawings, the reader follows the artist’s quest to escape the court of his self-created abstraction. This odyssey is punctuated by strange encounters and discoveries, told in a series of 29 drawings placed between blocks of images culled by the artist from the internet. These images intervene as sources of inspiration for the artist throughout the book, and emerge from the flow of drown narration like glimmers of a premonition. The original transparent paper of the drawings is abandoned in favor of a silk printed silver background, dissolving the immaterial space of the drawn story.
