L’homme qui s’en allait... by Carl Roosens


48 pages, 27x27 cm, published by Ion Edition


Carl Roosens is a polymorphous artist, who has published in many collections of the Belgian collective Nos Remains, directed a very famous animated film with Noémie Marsily, "Caniche", and released an unanimously acclaimed music album. His work is about his obsessions for dogs, sensuality, masks.

At the beginning of "L'homme qui s'en allait tout le temps, jamais très loin", a man walks in a supermarket to buy a camcorder. The places and people around him are deformed and bend to his obsessions. The pedestrians are mysterious and disturbing beings. It's a strange carnival of oddities where you meet fascinating animals and women. Its expressionist design evokes the Germans George Grosz, Karl Arnold or the illustrator Tomi Ungerer.
