"deliverance at last"

"deliverance at last" are the words on the cover of the magazine which Schunck* published on the occasion of the exhibition "Niki de Saint Phalle: Outside-In". I told you all about the exhibion in this post and that they're working on a "Niki zine" (from magazine...), and looking for pictures of  people who are inspired by her work in this one. And now the Nikizine is ready and they published my tattoo! I'm very happy with it, to be connected to her work and on a project like this. I want to share a part of the text about art, which I found very powerful:

"What makes the work of the artists who have been sidelined as "outsiders" so interesting and topical is that it indirectly reflects the way we deal with critical, nonconformist voices. As self-affirmed "insiders", we are all too happy to label those who think differently as "outsiders" in order to prevent our own convictions being placed in perspective, our fixed view of the world becoming unsettled and our carefully-constructed identity being placed in doubt."


  1. That's so cool, Céline, your hand published in a magazine, haha! :) Very great!

  2. the tatoo is even cooler than I have thought!

  3. That's great, Celine, it's a full page in the magazine, can imagine you are happy :-)

  5. Proficiat Céline! Mooi dat je op deze manier een speciale vermelding krijgt in relatie tot het werk van Niki, gezien de speciale gedachte achter deze tattoo, zoals je eerder beschreef!

    And thank you for sharing some of this marvelous work. It's inspirational. The words about outsider art and why it's labeled so have helped me today more than I can say.
