ICONOGRAPHY

The Caryatid supports the vault of a building, the square boulder as a base or pedestal, the anchor; these are all ancient symbols for the constancy, stability in life, also in 2015.

However, in the background the iceberg breaks off from the solid and melts slowly in the liquid.

Anchor!, brace yourself, am fixed! This is our wish to you.

At the same time, the allegory of young and old is a 'vanitas' symbol. The old fades, the youth is in sharp focus and protects itself by goggles and helmet against the debris triggered by the anchoring.

Frauen-Zimmer

Ik teken loodrecht de ruimte binnen, zonder
Plichtpleging of aarzeling: agressief, vlijmscherp
Scheer ik ordenend langs het rasterwerk, onder
De kloppende knooppunten door, en schielijk werp

Ik mijn vectoren op het papieren kader
Van mijn luciditeit, ik kan alles bouwen
De idee materialiseert, ik nader
De perfectie, hoor dan het ruisen van mouwen

Mijn lijnen buigen glijdend af, asymptoten
Lopen lachend weg naar rondwegen, rotonden
Vol van geheimen en fluisterende monden

In deze vrouwenkamer bestaan geen hoeken
En mijn symmetrie├źn worden hanenpoten
Ik ga liggen en sluit sluimerend mijn boeken

Room for women

Perpendicularly I draw into this space
without doubts, do’s or don’ts. Aggressively, all edge,
I skim across the grid, organising. I  race
along under the throbbing nodes, and swiftly wedge

my arrow-like vectors into the paper frame
of my lucidity. I can build what I wish.
The concept becomes real, I’ve almost reached my aim
of perfection when I hear rustling sleeves. Their swish

makes lines branch off and slide away, the asymptotes
laugh and turn to roundabouts, become rotundas
full of whispering mouths and mysterious looks.

In this room for women angles appear remote,
my symmetries, now scribbles, are torn asunder.
I lie down to slumber, drowsily  close my books.
