Carla Acevedo-Yates: Hi Steve, it’s a pleasure to speak with you once again! During our last interview, we spoke about the reasons that lead you to depart from painting and move to other mediums such as sculpture and performance. Since 2002, you have titled these works HORROR, but your recent work marks another departure with different and more complex titles, even though they also convey a sense of mystery and irony. Can you explain the reasons for this choice?
Steve Schepens: Dear Carla, the pleasure is completely mine!
Indeed, the HORROR works form a very important and vast cluster within my oeuvre, also the new titles are rooted in there. The sculpture THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE IS A FRAUD which was first presented at the Art in the City exhibition during the ARTBRUSSELS art fair in April and the exhibition BLUE MUSSEL BINGE DRINKING at Marianne Friis Gallery in Copenhagen in June both mark the start of the new period. The art-works can be seen as anchors for future creations.
