Marc Neys aka Swoon, born 1968, lives in Mechelen (Belgium). He has produced over 240 videpoems and collaborated with various writers in different languages. His videopoems and Shorts were shown at international Festivals and galleries. "Like all good art, the work of Marc Neys transports us to a state. It is a state of attention and reverie at the same time, where the artist shares with us his own intense experience of the moment, and then sends us each on our own inner investigations. Meditations on Nature, Time, Art, the human condition, and the spiritual cost of modernity - these are some of the dizzy heights that Marc Neys audiovisual essays explore. “Longing,” as Heidegger defines it, “is the agony of the nearness of the distant”. Marc Neys is a big name in the poetry film world. He has created appr. 300 video poems before he changed his focus to make music.
