Hard Cores In Hard-Hearted Chords
Freek Lomme & Joan van Barneveld
Onomatopee curator, art critic and poet Freek Lomme and artist Joan van Barneveld are connected by their dedication to the “hard cores in hard-hearted chords.” Their collaboration—an illustrated collection of poems—eloquently records their respective travel adventures and pays tribute to their shared need for a sense of place while in transition. Lomme’s poems evolved between 2008 and 2014 while he was on the road; Van Barneveld made her sketches and silkscreens of photos from a visit to Los Angeles. During Joan van Barneveld’s exhibition at Onomatopee’s art space, Lomme and Barneveld decided to combine her visual material with his unpublished poems. The result is an artist’s book that exudes the palpable energy of their commitment to depth while engaging art’s potential to articulate the indeterminate as they search for a profound, honest position in an expanding world.
