About The Artwork

Walter van Rijn ‘Being In Love UGLD’ Work 23 of a series of 25; Digital print, face mounted on plexiglass, aluminium subframe. 40.5 x 30.5 x 2.5 cM. Limited edition of 1 unique copy. Signed on the back. Commissioned by John Hansard Gallery 2018. *** On show at The Other Art Fair London 14-17 March 2019 *** ‘Being In Love UGLD’ is part of the installation Unconsumable Global Luxury Dispersion, commissioned by John Hansard Gallery, Southampton UK. It was shown in the exhibition ‘Time After Time’, with work by Caroline Bergvall, Victor Burgin, Hamad Butt, John Latham, and Charlotte Posenenske. For more information see the artist’s website [ ] or email me. This unique work is made with museum quality hi-definition 12 colour printing, certified for 100+ years. It is face mounted on plexiglass, with a solid aluminium subframe, creating a floating image in front of the wall. Ready to hang. The 5 mm crystal clear plexiglass with polished edges creates a smooth contemporary work. The back of the image is sealed with a white backing layer to protect it. I made this work for a futuristic public, a public of robots. Imagine a robot visits a gallery. It goes to the gallery's database, looks up an artwork and reads the title and other metadata. On this occasion, the robot selects 25 artworks and generates a display. The artwork that is the source of the meta-data leading to this work is shown at the bottom of the image. ‘Being In Love UGLD’ is one of the 25 unique works that I made from this sequence. The 25 works in this series can be seen individually or grouped together in a changing arrangement, creating different narratives from the titles as texts. See for example the artwork “The Detoxification, Left Defender, Mythic Being” [ ] This work also features the artist’s typeface, Being Human, which shows keywords of the human rights declaration within the capitals. It is mounted behind clear plexiglass which reflects the surroundings and adds accidental and temporary images to the work.

How Can You And I Ever Be Free In the 21st C? My work explores the natural and digital networked world and its many contradictions. From big data to detail, from large collections to one object, entities move through both these worlds and are transformed and hybridised by it. How Can You And I Ever Be Free In the 21st C?, is a question I keep on asking. And what is Freedom from human rights and environmental point of view? I create work that combines art and design, hybrids of image and text in digital and analogue form. The artworks can take any shape and have an unusual and speculative way of distribution and communication. Recently, I use meta-data as my material and create work in the form of typefaces, fictive collections and algorithmic text-based work. A cross-media practice which is dispersed alongside exhibited multi-media installations through printed matter, performances, public art, and websites. I am born in the Netherlands and live and work in the UK.
