In Here is where I exist, Ink Men and The Art of Writing, based on a divided love between language and poetry Bianca Sistermans and the writer Hester van Hasselt are working on long-term projects. Although text and image are always both involved, the projects have different appearances. Sometimes they are autonomous publications in newspapers and periodicals, such as the series Ink Men and The Art of Writing. At other times, it can be a comprehensive project such as Here is where I exist | Died completely alone, where a series of photos and texts resulted in a book, exhibition and public programme. Sistermans and Van Hasselt also publish small books independently.
Resulting from immediate clicking with the series Everyday Annoyances, Eva Gerlach wrote new poems and a consideration based on the photos. Sasja Janssen also did new work based on this series as her point of departure. All the material resulting from this was brought together in the book of the same name, published by AFdH uitgevers. Eva Gerlach’s consideration was published in precisely a slightly different form, along with three photographs.
When Bernke Klein Zandvoort saw people yawning through the eyes of Sistermans, her thoughts went in all directions. At present, she is working on an essay based on the photographs.
