Last Saturday the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam opened its doors for the public. Attracting thousands of visitors each year, the open studios weekend has become the most celebrated presentation of the creme de la creme of young artistic talent in the Netherlands.
Our friend and hero Wayne Horse is one of the talented international artists, who are honored with a residency at the Rijksakademie and he wouldn’t be the incredible Wayne, if he didn’t have something very special planned for his visitors.
The center piece of his presentation was a wooden hut wherein Wayne showcased the orgy-scene from his most recent movie. The studio was completely darkened and the spectators had to grab a lighter at the entrance to feel their way to the hut, where they had to peep through holes to see the scene. Thereby creating an intimate and shameful atmosphere that seems to encompass Wayne’s work.
The orgy-scene is the heart of Wayne’s current project, which is still in post-production, but planned to be premiered early next year. Wayne tells me that the goal of the movie was the process, rather than the final product, which is why he spun the whole movie around that one disturbing orgy-scene.
Naturally our master of intimacy and shame sang the soundtrack to his movie himself. We’ll keep you posted.
