Patricia Kaersenhout – Invisible Men
Eva Van Leeuwen
Who is actually invisible? Someone who remains unnoticed or someone who has no desire to be seen? What does being invisible actually mean? Inspired by Ralph Ellisons only novel Invisible Man, artist Patricia Kaersenhout sets out in search of the invisible men in her life. On the pages of an old biology textbook, with its illustration of innards, skin structure, hair, digestive systems and so on, she tried to visualise the invisible: from spirit to flesh. These works are presented in a well-conceived publication, beautifully reproduced in full-colour, printed on luscious gloss and matt paper and introduced by an interview with the artist.
