The Visionary and the Visual: Introduction to Art Project part 2.

By Sander Vloebergs

In this part of the project I will present the result of an artistic-theological dialogue with the visionary Hadewijch and her fourth vision. In Part 1. of this art project I experienced the difficulties translating the visionary language to the visual medium of drawings. I encountered a deeply rooted intellectualistic response to the text which could partially be related to my academic training. In Part 2. I have the feeling that the art process was a long but fruitful struggle with the text, an exercise in combining both the intellectual reflection and the artistic freedom of contemplative seeing.
