This publication consists of two parts which, together, form a whole; Maddy Arkesteyn’s book on her latest work and the master thesis she wrote in 2009, with which she completed her studies in “Philosophy and Ethics’ at the Vrije Universiteit of Brussels. Many of the sculptures depicted in the book were produced during a three-month working period in Xiamen, China.
The title of the book, When the second voice does not occupy a stable position, after a quote from the book In the heart of the land by J.M. Coetzee, refers to dislocation and decline. The thesis, The connection between desire and loss of control. Loss of control as capacity and insight, represents Maddy’s vision and her way of thinking.
The texts from 2009 about fear, illness, identity and liberation hold an extraordinary significance and timeliness at this moment in August 2012. Maddy died, August 29, 2012 in Brussels.
