Newsflash: Julie O’yang and Filip Naudts mastermind a wild plan

Julie O’yang and Filip Naudts mastermind a wild plan

Last week Dutch-Chinese writer Julie O’yang flew over from Denmark where she is currently living and visited Filip Naudts’ studio in Belgium. The two of them have been working on a cross-cultural art project over the past year, which will result in a sci-fi photo novel The Picture of Dorya Glenn.

The authors don’t wish to give away details yet, but the story centres upon an alien who walks around dressed in a see-through burqa.  The first photo shoot took place in northern France. Now it was the occasion for the duo to put the dot on the i in Lochristi, Naudts’ studio and artistic hotbed. This book stands out in every way as we are told that their creative bond will also be fuelled by Eurorocker Arno, who has authorized his participation in the project.

The Picture of Dorya Glenn is scheduled for publication in September 2017 with Stichting Kunstboek. Showbizz site reports (read Dutch version).
