Winds, a solo exhibition by Netherlands-based artist Dan Walwin, presented an installation of video, sound and objects at Cell Project Space, running September 19 to November 1, 2015. Highly detailed yet unresolved, various technologies and media are staged in the space. Re-routing familiar information, arrangements of sound and mobile phone footage of particular landscapes sit alongside the omnipresence of human intervention.
In addition to the work, the press release includes a text that goes in and out of clarity:
“/ work is done in an emotional space that I’m alive. It SA Back representation
surrounding the mirror. (Specific Guetting; in the use of signs, trash cans, not
, to the eye, become a disturbing object, I MA Walker, I walk, my eye picks
, stuff that get a second life use in my mind .. .)
s practical in the emotional space that I’m alive. Sa representation of copies
ound the mirror. (Guetting specific; the use of signs, trash cans, do not go to
e eye, and become sexy object of concern, and I MA Walker, and I walk, my
es pick up things that you get to use Second Life in my mind …)”
Through architectural interventions, the space is transformed into a metal framework of wooden panels protruding from the wall. The purpose of the partitions are left unclear and the elaborate fixtures are given no purpose. Defying categorisation, scale and orientation are also disrupted within the videos and the exhibition places itself between innovation and invasion of a particular, visceral space.**
