DAESEMIRC is a banner, designed for the Marsh on Ostend, an 'Ensorian' parade full of rhythm, colour, sound and movement. As in the paintings of Ensor, this is a procession with a lot of actors, dancers, acrobats, clowns and musicians. For this design, Ervinck started from a typical 19th century flowered wall paper. Transforming and combining these motives, a new drawing was born, which in turn was transformed into a coral study. At first sight, this drawing looks abstract, yet, looking a little bit closer, one can recognise eyes, a nose, a mouth,.. DAESEMIRC thus is an eclectic manifestation, both referring to 19th century interior design, and to terrifying folkloristic masks. The latter in its turn also refers to James Ensor, and his painted parade of masks. Carried around in the procession, DAESEMIRC refers to the ritual character of public meetings.
