The correlation between language and image are deeply entangled in Patrick Keulemans' work, based on a fascination with language-communication. More specific his body of work refers to metaphors for the (im)possibility of communication and interaction. His playful sculptures and installations have a delicate sense of humor, reminding us how we are imbedded in discourse, sometimes carrying references to ancient cultures.
With Ping Pong the artist refers to the direct relation between viewer and artist and their interaction in space.
