HubertGraphic Novel - 2016
Hubert is an autistic man who shapes his life by going to museums (in Brussels, London and Paris). The world outside is a puzzle to him. He talks to few people and only about museums and art. When his neighbour downstairs, a lonely woman, invites him again and again to come for a drink, he only goes because she has a painting that interests him. When she tries to seduce him, he doesn't understand. He takes photos of the pictures he likes, usually of beautiful women and paints copies of the paintings at home. There is only one real woman who fascinates him; she lives in the opposite building and he can see her balcony from his window.
