Hinter den Hügeln

Andy Hope 1930

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

 

Isidore Ducasse, dit Comte de Lautréamont

 

A fictional autobiography in storyboard form allows 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 documents, which function as the artist’s inspiration throughout his oeuvre, surface in the flow of the graphic narration like glimmers of a premonition. The silver background of serigraphy-printed drawings replaces the transparent background of the originals and contributes to dissolving the narrative space even further into immateriality.
