3D stereoscopic installation, loop, 2017
Music: David Dramm
Since a decade I am following the works of Arent Weevers and had the honour to show some of his 3D installations at the international BEYOND Festival at ZKM in Germany. His very subtle approach, on very important issues of our time, result from his mastery not only in the 3-dimensional video works, but also the context he constructs in presenting those works in spaces like the Lebuinus Church in Deventer in the Netherlands. Here the value of the work got a surplus by the real world, when the well in the crypt, where the artwork was presented, was flooded by the rising waters of the Ijssel creating a powerful metaphor on Climate Change.
Space-Time-Narratives at his best.
