“Het is 18 juli 1995. Woensdagmiddag. Ik ben zes jaar oud. De Tour de France heeft de bergpas Col de Portet d'Aspet bereikt. De tv staat aan. De wielrenners dalen af, maar een van hen bereikt nooit de finish. Foetale positie. Ledematen om het lichaam heen gekruld om het te beschermen tegen dreigend gevaar. Voor wielrenner F. Casartelli was het de laatste positie, een stervende positie.”

De publicatie Lic-Hamo van Degann is een experiment waarin het gelijknamige project van de kunstenaar wordt vertaald naar de vorm van printed matter. ’Lic-Hamo’ overbrugt de dunne grens tussen waarde en waardeloosheid en benadrukt het belang van verhalen om hiermee stilstaande momenten tot leven te brengen.

"It is July 18, 1995. Wednesday afternoon. I am six years old. The Tour de France has reached the Col de Portet d'Aspet pass. The TV is on. The cyclists descend, but one of them never reaches the finish. Fetal position. Limbs curled around the body to protect it from imminent danger. For cyclist F. Casartelli, it was the last position, a dying position. "

The publication Lic-Hamo by Degann is an experiment in which the eponymous project by the artist is translated into the form of printed matter. 'Lic-Hamo' bridges the thin line between value and worthlessness and emphasizes the importance of stories to bring still moments to life.

About the artist:

DEGANN's paintings and watercolours are vivid and aesthetically liable images that sometimes disguise an atrabilious element. With mental vulnerability and transience as central themes within the work. "I don’t work towards mimesis but towards a possible temporary essence of the portrayed, which is often introspective and removed. The transparency of the layers of paint creates discolorations on the surface. These aqueous spots that deform the shape of the heads approach that what is inside, the intimacy of the sitter’s spirit"
