Evoking cartoons, vintage film stills or film noir, the drawings by Dutch artist Marcel van Eeden (b. 1965) tell a complex, non-linear narrative. Using only images and texts predating the year of his birth, van Eeden appropriates an irrecoverable era. He removes the original context, adding fictitious protagonists to his „stories“. His large series of drawings consist of „snapshots“ in rapid succession. Suggestive of a movie, they can be „read“ from beginning to end, or the other way round.
