Honoré ðO - "The Quest" Variations on a Theme

Honoré δ'O


Book, 23 cm x 17 cm.
Materials: Ink, paper

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp.

"The Quest" Variations on a Theme may be read as a safari-project through the reserve of the artist's archives.  This grey book treats this quest mainly through images of Honoré ðO’s exhibition during the Venice Biennale and an exhibition in Charleroi.  The accompanying projects are sketched at the front and back of the book, and in the middle are found series of video-stills.

Within the volume “The Quest” variations on the theme, a DVD sits hidden: Osmose.  While a book is usually a matter of documentation, this video is pure artistic 'information'.  Here, Honoré ðO is fragmented in the key of blue - with the artist completely dissolving in a mix of blue heaven.

Authors: Honoré ðO, Dieter Roelstraete, Pierre-Olivier Rollin, Inge Braeckman, Bart De Baere.  Publisher: Honoré ðO (Belgium). Accompanying material: DVD 'Osmose'.  Texts: Dutch, English, Korean. ISBN 90-811078-1-X
