For the art programme 'Openbaar Kunstbezit' Cornelis made two essayistic television reports in 1972 about the use of hands and eyes in the visual arts, “a way to look and to communicate.” With regard to its form, 'Oog en hand als uitdrukking 01' ('Eye and hand as expression 01') is very free, certainly bearing in mind the television standards of the time. To the tune of Eastern lute music, we are presented a sequence—a pile-up almost—of sculptures and painting from the East, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and Baroque, but also modern masters such as Paul Delvaux or Picasso. The voice-over sounds both poetical and intractable. Cornelis at his best in a televised pamphlet that doesn’t bother about the rules of the medium.
