Witte de With Contemporary Art

Exhibition

The largest monographic presentation of the work of Eric Baudelaire to date, including his latest feature length film Also Known As Jihadi. Ceaselessly and open-endedly engaging with histories of images, cinema, radical militancy, and violence by or against the state and spanning over a decade of artistic production across installation, print, photography and film, the exhibition follows Baudelaire's sustained attempts to find a form that accommodates the often catastrophic complexity of contemporary life.

Media technologies such as CCTV, automation, and screens of all sorts have become the culturally and politically charged frames and filters through which we see reality, oftentimes obscuring or even replacing reality itself. Judy Radul transforms the exhibition spaces into a dynamic set for live image production and sets out to explore the poetic and social agency of doors, windows, entrances, and exits by means of her multi-camera, live-feed “present system” – the backbone of the exhibition.

Exhibition

the wet wet wanderer is presented as part of Para | Fictions, a cycle of sustained investigations taking as its focus the relationship between literature and visual art. Prouvost’s installation transforms the ground floor of Witte de With into a strange mutated sub-aqueous bar, laced with squid ink and dotted with vodka fountains. Combining sculpture, video and sound, the form of a mundane high street commercial space is defamiliarized and shot through with a narrative overlay that metamorphoses literature to space, film to sculpture. Here language is as slippery as a squid, function as deceitful as fiction.
