Nel Aerts, Waddle Work Film, 2019, WIELS from home


From the WIELS from HOME Project: WIELS continues to visit you at home with exclusive content and some tips to bring art from around the world directly to you.
This week: Nel Aerts - Waddle Work Film

In Waddle Work Film we see a painted hand hesitantly building up a risky stacking sculpture. It shows the creation of the similarly named Waddle Works by Nel Aerts. It is a precarious process that could go wrong at any moment. The stacks reveal the moment a work of art is originated.

For each of these sculptures Aerts wrote a ‘cadavre exquis' that you can read at home while watching the film. Download the texts and images here:
