Work Cloth (2020), Robbert Weide, ongoing series, embroidery, dirt, cloth, 36.5 x 38.5

A solo exhibition by Dutch artist Robbert Weide. The core of Robbert Weide’s artistic practice is the preceding and proceeding, the buildup and dismantling: the often unseen or ignored subsurface of objects, events, and actions. What is most important is not the stasis of the final work, but the sensory, narrative, and imaginative extrapolations one can gather from it. By refraining from dénouement, Weide creates suspenseful works of humor that highlight the peripheral and often unseen preconditions of their production.
