is one of the results of my residency  period at MMCA Changdong, Seoul, supported by the Mondriaan Foundation.
Western landscape paintings are long horizontally and are looked at from the top left to the bottom right. Korean (or Asian) paintings are long vertically. Koreans used to write in vertical lines, but since the writing was changed into horizontal lines and reading from left to right it also influenced people to look at the traditional painting in a Western way.

Traditional Korean landscape painters went up in the mountains and later painted the landscape from memory – the paintings are of real places but fictional at the same time. Climbing the Seoul mountains was an attempt to get closer to understanding the traditional Asian landscape painting and the part it plays in collective memory.

-> After Eight special edition 2013

cover drawing by Charlotte Koopman

In fact, a bush looks like anything’. In a poem ‘Isaac and Abraham’ Joseph Brodsky compares a bush to an explosion, a river delta, blood veins, a hand and a hundred arms. Even the letters of the word ???? (‘bush’ in Russian) become branches. ‘Who? A bush. What? A bush. 
Imagine how many possibilities of transformation a bush has in the dark.
I am afraid of darkness but deal with my fear reasonably – by trying to understand why.
When the sun sets colours begin to change and the overall mood changes with them. The lack of light takes away our certainty that we see things clearly. The lack of visual input gives a kick-start to imagination. Doubt in perception slows down the process of looking. The gaps are filled with suggestions and associations coming from memory and previous experiences. Wishful thinking and expectation colour our view.
A friend of mine, Charlotte Koopman, has a fake After Eight chocolate mint that she likes to offer to unsuspecting and trusting friends. It is a rubber thing that doesn’t feel or smell or even look like the real chocolate. Still, the trick works.
Look well and don’t take things for granted.
Charlotte made the After Eight drawing for the cover.
