2016.03.24 Sometimes it is time for something completely different. So here it is: a glimpse of my new photographic research project “swimming taco salad”.
Feeling a bit naked though: the new curator on Democratic Jungle, wrote an article about it even though my project is still under development.
A small selection of works is included in the article, and I am continuing with reflecting about possible installations, writing texts and finding people to talk about it.
It started in 2014 combining a growing interest in digital media and abstraction.

Dieter De Lathauwer stelt met Nightlife de ‘buitenkanten’ van dancings letterlijk in het daglicht.

Zijn fotografie flirt met de documentaire stijl, maar vloeit door zijn doorgedreven koelbloedigheid over in mysterie. De Lathauwer tuurt graag in liminale plekken die hun bestemming hebben verloren. Met een ongemeen scherpe lens voor de kwetsbaarheid van de plek. In Nightlife mag dans dan dé bestemming zijn, de aantrekkingskracht ligt in het clandestiene. De ‘geheimzucht’ besloten in de architecturale inbedding van de dancings in een nietsvermoedende stadskom, doet het besef groeien, niet alleen van een apart cultureel erfgoed in wording, maar ook van een harde kern van deze reeks: dat het dansen zelf, zoals de dood, ondanks die nachtelijke ‘buitenpositie’, onafscheidelijk is van het alledaagse leven. De Lathauwer geeft ons de indruk dat er een essentie bestaat die we niet met blote oog kunnen zien.

Die indruk is onuitwisbaar. En ontroerend.
