Publisher's Description
'Macquenoise' is the bittersweet portrait of a mother and son who live a secluded life on the fringes of Belgium, at the mercy of the seasons, with only animals for company. From this oedipal relationship wells up a violence suffocated by a state of immobility. At times, a look seems to be a cry for help, a warning that we heed while remaining mute, powerless. Photographer Pierre Liebaert steeped himself in the family's intimacy, becoming part of it, tuning himself to the farm's slow rhythm and his hosts. It is a simple, uneventful life that seems set to last for eternity. The images lay the foundations of Liebaert's current work: an interest in the rawness of the fringe.
