99 Rooms

28 December 2006

I love to explore virtual rooms, especially unheimlich rooms, and there’s something about abandoned places that fascinates. The desire to take a peek at the metamorphosis that ensues once the ethos of purpose has left a building and the mischevious spirits take hold.

Here are 99 Rooms full of mystery and intrigue.

Artists’ statement:

99rooms stemmed from the mystical, often apolocalyptically charming pictures created by Berlin artist Kim Köster within the countless vacated premises of East Berlin‘s industrial sector. Photos of these paintings were initially produced in digital form and then animated through a cooperative effort between Richard Schumann & Stephan Schulz and then subsequently complemented through a personal sounddesign from Johannes Buenemann. The final product of this year long effort is a scintillating intermediary world which invites the observer into an journey through its morbidly-beautiful rooms.

The Blank Canvas

20 December 2006

The blank canvas, the tabula rasa, the dread white planes of the empty space! I must scrawl something here – a few scribbles, a daub or two, anything to set me off on my new venture – the Wilx Collection.

My gallery, my great exhibition space… Ah… I pause to survey the cool white of this temporary lacuna. Soon it will be full of wonders. Exhibited here will be treasures collected from my travels – and others from closer to home – but all will be creative works that I value and wish to share.

Soon…

Soon, once my space is ready. I refuse to exhibit until I’ve achieved the right ambience. So why have I opened my doors so prematurely?

I must apologise, dear visitor, if you’ve arrived here before my grand opening. Or should that be private view? Public/private view? Anyway, who can resist visiting new premises before the paint has dried and carpet laid? It’s a novelty to be in such an empty space, our lives are normally so crammed full of things. I couldn’t help but leave the door open for you too.

But I must get on, I have many treasures to unpack. There’s so much to do before I launch my first exhibit.
