A novel by Belgian artist David Evrard.
Spirit of Ecstasy is like a long acid trip in which places, epochs, characters, imagined and real things are mingled and in which people just get to see the sun rise. The book seems to be constructed from visions. It's pink, orange and purple and scintillating. There is smoke, mind-blowing geometrical forms, dance, sex, and rhythm. uppercuts and swings. It's difficult to get to a chronology, and you almost need a map to find your way. Spirit of Ecstasy is a novel written by David Evrard that delivers a joyful experience of exhibition. It's even a large show that constitute the core of the narration, with a crazy curator with copper teeth who by the way doesn't organise anything, and artists who talk, have fun, and who construct spaces and forms”.
