Lies Van Gasse

Lies van Gasse

(Belgium, 1983)

"We uncomprehendingly cycle off and away".

As a poet and artist, Lies van Gasse often builds bridges between text and image. Yet these images are not 'literal' translations of the words; in her graphic poems, image and text complement each other. She has also published work without images, like her most recent collection, Wassende stad, which uses language to create a living, breathing city: bright summer days, but also a scrambling crowd – a sweltering, oppressive atmosphere sometimes descending upon the poems, and then "we, who uncomprehendingly cycle off and away".
