Diana en Actaeon
Three artists have taken one of the best stories from Ovid's Metamorphoses as a starting point for their work. It is about the power of looking and being looked at, unintentionally breaking the taboo, and the way it enchants and transforms the viewer. Quote: "And yet consider why the change was wrought, You'll find it his misfortune, not his fault; Or, if a fault, it was the fault of chance: For how can guilt proceed from ignorance?" (Ovid. III 141-142).

In 2012 his second volume Huisverraad appeared also at De Bezige Bij and this was awarded the Mr J.C.Bloem-Poëzieprijs in 2013. More info: www.mischa-andriessen.com
