Dré Wapenaar 1988

Photography: Robbert R. Roos


First Sculpture after graduating the academy of visual arts. Built by Dré Wapenaar over a period of one and a half year, starting in january 1987. The project has gone through several different phases.
The theme of the loner versus the group is already visible in this work, but not fully exposed and cleared. Only years later, after a long detour, and combining it with the theme of the tent, it became possible to really work out these issues.

The studio we see in the pictures is the first studio where dré wapenaar started working, just beside the big church in the centre of the city of Tilburg, in the middle/south of the Netherlands.
