Experience Kinetic Art: Willem van Weeghel

Are you ready to delve into a world where movement becomes art? Join us at the Mandarin Oriental Barcelona on
May 23rd at 6:30 pm
for an exclusive Meet the Artist presentation featuring a captivating exploration of kinetic art.

We are thrilled to introduce you to the innovative work of Willem van Weeghel, whose creations blur the boundaries between chaos and order, variability and uniformity, volatility and consistency.

“Movement is the central means of expression in my work,” the artist shares. His kinetic objects, meticulously crafted with a serial use of elements, embody a mesmerizing dance between form and motion. Imagine identical elements seamlessly intertwining, akin to dancers executing a complex choreography, to form constantly evolving sequences.

But there’s more to it than meets the eye. Behind the graceful movements lies advanced technology, carefully orchestrated to control the intricate choreography of the artist’s creations. Yet, this technology remains hidden from the spectator, serving solely as an instrument to visualize the passage of time and the perpetual flux of existence.

During the event, you’ll have the opportunity to engage with the artist in a Q&A session, gaining insight into his creative process, inspirations, and the philosophy behind his work.

Mark your calendars for May 23rd and join us for an evening of inspiration and creativity.
