Kill Bambi

JEROEN VERBRUGGEN

«Growing up...
Some take their time while others rush ahead.
Some refuse while others eagerly await it.
Often, events and chance speed up the passage of time without asking for our opinion.
And then, there are those who seek to return to their childhood.
But is it really possible to turn back the clock?
This is the question asked by Kill Bambi, and that’s why I wanted to start with the end.
On going back, the pain is still there. It threatens us and returns, made even more intense by the acuteness of an eye which has grown old and which can sometimes face it with humour.» Jeroen Verbruggen
