THE WILD / July 8th - August 13th 2017 / W139 Amsterdam

Opening Friday July 7th 2017, 20:00 - 01:00

The Wild

Mechanical flirtations entice you to enter The Wild, low humming and smooth rattling pull you in even further. The art works move, are being moved, oscillate.

During this explosively kinetic exhibition, new large scale art works will be both testing themselves as well as the public to its limits. The Wild takes the durability and the beauty of sculptures in perpetual motion, to the brink, only to then push them over.

The art works risk deterioration and dilapidation, either dying out quietly or doing so in a magnificently grotesque fashion, rendering those to witness it, in a horrifyingly powerless position.

The ultimate unfolding.
