about this work

Freek Wambacq's edition Cheval au galop avant Muybridge, Cheval au galop après Muybridge, Cheval au galop après Broodthaers, Cheval dansant le hula draws connections between Eadweard Muybridge, Marcel Broodthaers, cinematic sound effects, and the Polynesian hula dance. His point of departure was a work by Marcel Broodthaers, shown at Witte de With as part of Still: A Novel (1996), an exhibition about the origins of cinema and photography and their influence on the visual arts, curated by Chris Dercon.

This edition is part of a set that was produced in the context of Witte de With’s In Light Of 25 Years. On the occasion of its 25th anniversary, Witte de With examined its history, dedicating its ground-floor gallery to a series of commissioned presentations by a select group of contemporary artists. Each participant created an image-based work that analyzed certain sediments of contemporary art history. Presented on a large-scale double-sided light box these anniversary commissions were visible to the city day and night. Throughout 2015, In Light Of 25 Years functioned as a space for artists and curators to respond to developments in contemporary art, its landscape and possibilities, departing from Witte de With’s past program.

WDWXXV brings together the ten In Light Of 25 Years commissions. Presented in a slim Plexiglas box frame, inspired by the light box itself, this limited edition portfolio features ten high quality prints by the participating artists Özlem AltinWineke GartzCamille HenrotGermaine KruipMahonyRaimundas MalašauskasZin TaylorFreek WambacqLawrence Weiner, and Xu Zhen.

about Freek Wambacq

°1978, Brussels (BE) – lives and works in Brussels (BE)

The work of Freek Wambacq often arises from chance encounters and personal discoveries. He investigates the connections between sculpture, installation and architecture. In so doing, the artist makes use of everyday, sometimes even absurd-looking objects and artisanal materials and techniques.

Below the surface of these deceptively simple objects, however, there is a tangle of various stories, sociological commentaries and recurring architectural or art historical references that add numerous dimensions to the aesthetic qualities of the work. Wambacq’s artistic creation is both material and conceptual, thus creating a critical link between the art world and the world itself.
