Hotel Bellevue

Hotel Bellevue is a small photobook and a fabulated dictionary combined. A vocabulary centered around border trees, Celtic historical facts and visual speculation. This book is a manifesto for love, anger, the non-human, a wish to connect, to suggest, and to study.

In this book Dries Segers focusses on the visual and verbal lexicon shaping the project Hotel Bellevue. Not intended as a truth but as a suggestion, it chronicles encounters between images, words, structures, and life forms, the speculative result of observations and processed information.

Hotel Bellevue starts from the idea of a border tree. Border trees were once planted as a kind of guardian, a marker used by legal authorities to outline the area where they could wield their power, a tool to settle border conflicts. Hotel Bellevue was an exhibition and became a book and will become an exhibition again.
