. one in a million - Lotte Van den Audenaeren
.
. one in a million (2012 - present) is an ongoing intervention repeated in multiple contexts and places, capturing the instantaneous. Each hand-drawn circle indicates a moment in time that can never be the same as the following.
. A way to mark time and presence.
. Made on glass surfaces, every drawing frames 'time-place', in this case indicating the ever changing waiting/exhibition space.

. NE RIEN FAIRE ET LAISSER RIRE - Maxime Le Bon
.
. "Vous dessinez en peignant, mauvais ! mauvais ! vous allez vous noyer. C'est le sentiment qui vous perd, vous n'êtes pas le seul. La semaine passée, vous avez fait un bon dessin, maintenant c'est encore une fois la même chose ; vous avez mal à l’œil peut-être ? Un sculpteur serait bien embarrassé s'il devait faire quelque chose d'après votre dessin. Est-ce M. Slimmevogel qui a retouché ça ?"
.
. Directeur de l’Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts à James Ensor entre 1877-1880

. Carnets d'errance (Gare du Midi) - Guillaume Clermont
.
. Depuis quelques années, j’abandonne, ici et là, mes tableaux dans divers lieux publics. À chaque fois, je photographie le lieu de ces abandons. Plusieurs centaines de tableaux ont ainsi été abandonnés.     *
. ERRER, v. intr. XIIe siècle, issu du latin errare, « aller à l'aventure », d'où « faire fausse route, se tromper ». 
◇ 1. Aller au hasard, marcher à l'aventure, sans but précis. Les touristes, désœuvrés, errent dans la ville. Errer par la campagne. Errer parmi les bois. Expr. fig. Errer comme une âme en peine, être en proie à un ennui, une inquiétude, une solitude que l'on ne sait comment rompre. Par anal. Un bateau qui erre sur les flots. Les nuages erraient dans le ciel, au gré du vent. Son regard erra sur l'assistance. Fig. Laisser errer ses pensées, laisser aller son esprit sans établir de liaison entre ses idées. Laisser errer son imagination.
◇ 2. Class. S'écarter de la vérité, être dans l'erreur, se tromper. Il faut conclure, même au risque d'errer. Il erre dans ses conclusions, ses conclusions sont erronées, fautives. Redresser ceux qui errent. Selon Rousseau, la volonté générale ne saurait errer.

. Messonission/ île du milieu - Yiannis Papadopoulos
.
. There is a picture I've found online, from the film shooting of Theo Angelopoulos' film Voyage à Cythères, 1984;
. It stays in my memory and often I recall it when I am waiting on an outdoor train platform. It's the second man's boots or the mist, but for sure how the name of the town is written.      *

. Events that happened before the shoe appeared - Aukje Koks
.
. Through the glass of the window shop, daylight led lighting reflected in the varnish, which made me hungry.
. Approximately two years ago, I portrayed two plates with a few cabbage leafs on each one of them; a leaf on the left plate touched/reached the right plate. It's not so deep and it's not so dark.
. The food elevator descended my food to the guy with sauce on his chemise. Maybe I could have portrayed it again.
