Willehad Eilers / WayneHorse (Germany, 1981) lives and works in Amsterdam. He graduated from the Royal Academy of Arts in Amsterdam. He has shown at the Centraal Museum Utrecht, the Venice Biennale, HLP Projects in Brussels and Gallerie Gabriel Rolt.
In his work, which ranges from video to drawing and performance, Eilers experiments with different ways of exploring storytelling, the aim being to provoke the story to tell itself. Eilers deals with modern day society, focusing on the absurdities and oddness of day to day life and routines. Though at times described as a ‘mocking comment’, his work does also carry a feeling of compassion and romance. We are all in the same boat, we are all in this together. A sense of adventure is a key element to his work. An idea is approached through many different media, twisted around until the right vessel is found. The work turns into a travel and things encountered on the way fall into place. The result is merely a moment in which to step back and look. A good work moves on and creates new challenges.
