Joachim Kniepstof



Joachim Kniepstof consisting of images only, takes you on a sleepwalking adventure through 122 pages of experimental storytelling. The mere size of the book requires a certain level of dedication from the viewer. It is a book to be experienced with care, not just flipped through. The associative image sequences introduce a non-linear story that develops very organically, page after page, as if you are watching an animation. While dwelling in the realm of the absurd and unexpected, the attentive viewer may appreciate not only the changing narrative, but also a change in drawing. Kniepstof’s images start out as linear sketches, mere suggestions of something beyond, and develop into more detailed forms, drawn with a generous amount of black ink, which makes all the imagery come alive. A paper dream in A3 for all ages and all those brave enough to ignore the price tag.
