Robin Waart – Dedication(s) Hallway Installation

de Appel, Schipluidenlaan 12, Amsterdam
‘To C.L.S.’, ‘For A.L.M.’, ‘In Memory of J.V.C.’ – Starting from his collection of three-letter dedications, Robin Waart’s new artist book Dedication(s) looks at hidden and public modes of address. While these initial-only dedications appear in printed books, they remain private, intimate allusions between author and intended recipient. The project then infers the strange position of the reader who encounters these cryptic dedications, which perhaps get in the way of, or perhaps better clarify, the relationship between author and audience. Waart’s project questions the relationship between a work and the reality in which it comes about, and why, and for whom, we make what we make. All 27 dedications from the book will be on view on the windows of De Appel’s first floor hallway. This installation will be partly accessible during exhibition opening hours. To view the entire installation visit during archive hours: Wednesdays and Thursdays 14:00-18:00.
