Marie-José Van Hee architecten, excerpt from participant's statement:
"Two custom made books showing photos and ‘black drawings’ are presented on reused lecterns, designed by Marie-José Van Hee in 1993. The content offers a small excerpt of the light, space and proportions that have formed the (un)built oeuvre of the architect over the last four decades, working together with clients and colleagues, builders, artisans and artists. One light bulb hangs in the space, reminiscent of those in her freespace in Ghent. Out of the darkness, a new project is born."
Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara, excerpt from curator's of the 16th Biennale Architettura statement:
"For this exhibition Marie-José Van Hee focuses, through her drawings, on the search to find architecture in each project. The energy of the drawings expresses an almost frantic impatience to find that space she is looking for. What is very important for us as curators is that the visitor will appreciate the process and the journey of the architect in the making of architecture."
