Installation view Jordan Wolfson Part 2: TRUTH / LOVE
The first solo exhibition in the Netherlands of the American artist Jordan Wolfson (New York, 1980) unfolds in two parts. It opened with MANIC/LOVE and now continues with TRUTH/LOVE (on view from 18 February – 23 April 2017). Both editions centre around Wolfson’s animatronics (computer controlled moving sculptures). Featuring a wide selection of animated videos, 15 mm films and digital wall objects, this diptych presents a comprehensive overview of Wolfson’s work.
 
Centerpiece of the exhibition’s second part is Wolfson’s first animatronic creation, the thought-provoking Female figure (2014). This computer-controlled, hyper-sexualized blonde robotic woman flaunts the kind of outfit ordinarily worn by pop stars in music videos: a see-through miniskirt, high-heeled thigh-high boots, and long gloves. A device loaded with motion tracking software, concealed beneath a green, bird-like mask, enables her to lock eyes with viewers. While the woman speaks to her audience—accompanied by a soundtrack of pop music—she gyrates before the mirror, alluring yet repugnant, in an endless ballet of watching and being watched.
 
Important visitor information
Because the installation Female figure is intended to be viewed by a small number of people at a time, visitors will be issued with a time slot. When you arrive at the museum, you will be assigned a time slot for that day. Time slots need to be reserved. Morning time slots (up to 1pm) can be reserved from 10am. From Monday to Thursday, afternoon time slots are available until 5pm, and can be reserved from 2pm onwards. On Fridays, slots are also available in the evening, from 6pm to 10pm. Time slots can only be reserved at the Stedelijk – you cannot select a time slot by phone, email or through the website. The rest of the exhibition can be viewed during the Stedelijk’s opening hours (10 am - 6 pm and Friday 10 am -10 pm).
