If I Were You
Oscar van den Boogaard
Studio Luc Derycke with Emi Kodama
Anna is on her way to see friends when she stops at some graffiti of two dogs mating and draws a house for them. So begins this deft collection of short stories and drawings that follow Anna through the moments that make up a life. She is constantly looking, and what she sees delights, even when she sees wrongly or mistakenly. The stories live as much through images as through narrative – images confound. Dreams, memory, and imagination blur the boundary between the visible and the hidden in this wise and beautiful book.
