“Dan Walwin works with sculptural and video installations or environments that have consistently been engaged with ideas about infrastructure and an architecture of experience. They have often worked to transform an exterior landscape or site into a sensorially intimate, choreographed, and contained one, using and referring to technological apparatus and systemisation. Temporal confusions between forensic analysis and an aspect of modelling or reverse-engineering are part of its intricacies and cycles, as is a sense of material [and cultural] detritus, decay or ruin.”

“Totaal onvertaalbaar / speelt heel graag met taal. woorden zijn een onderdeel van zijn oeuvre. speaks very much with language. words are part of his oeuvre."

"In zijn video-installaties worden taal, geluid, en beeld versmolten tot een fascinerend geheel."

"In his video installations language, sound, and image are melted into a fascinating whole.”

Show called spies (2017) is a recent work, commissioned by TodaysArt, where close attention is paid to a carefully composed setting, its actors and their interactions, with an emphasis on ways of observing and being observed in exchange.

Dan Walwin (b. Frome, UK, 1986) completed studies in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, London in 2007, and was resident at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam from 2012-13.
