|Het is Begonnen, by Sander Uitdehaag||/1|
- Georges Perec in Species of Spaces
Sander Uitdehaag’s publication Het is begonnen (It Has Begun) is a collection of 11 separate texts, each one a possible beginning to the text that is the sum of these 11 beginnings.
Het is begonnen is inspired by the work of writer Georges Perec. His many novels and stories are extremely different in style and genre, but all of them are examples of constrained writing: Perec is bound by a self-inflicted condition that forbids him things or imposes a pattern.
Among many other works, artist Paul Bogaers is the author of the collage novel Onderlangs (Down Below), a book entirely composed of found sentences, gathered together from a great variety of books. Bogaers will discuss the process of this work and the importance of the constraint in regard to form, content and length of the project.
Passing through the corridors of their private idiom, artists and writers Mercedes Azpilicueta and Ohad Ben Shimon will perform What begins and ends within our own edges, a work swirling around the glycerine currents of their shared snow-globe.
