Presentation of his spatial installations, with Solvej Helweg Ovesen (curator Berlin/Copenhagen)
The spatial installations of the artist celebrate what is already there (space, artworks and visitors). Wendland is inspired by the Austrian artist and graphic designer Herbert Bayer (1900-1985) who collaborated with various members of the Bauhaus movement. The installation Untitled showcased at n.b.k. addresses the exhibition space as a stage not only for the artworks, but also for the viewers. Wendland uses light materials that are easy to craft like white cardboard and wooden panels. Creating a parcours that guides visitors through the show, his partitions are easily marked and bear traces of their handling during the installation process, wear from visitor interaction, and the inevitable effects of gravity.
