Eye presents new work by Alex van Warmerdam in an exhibition specially designed for the film museum. Characters, objects and situations come to life in a mysteriously staged setting, complemented by big screens showing scenes from Van Warmerdam’s films. All elements of the exhibition testify to the down-to-earth imagination and idiosyncratic approach of Alex van Warmerdam as a maker of films and works for the stage, as well as a writer and painter.
Accompanying the exhibition is a publication with a selection of Van Warmerdam’s poems, scenes from plays, images from his films and theatre performances, posters and paintings. In addition, the literary periodical De Gids has invited a range of writers and poets, whose work displays a comparable originality, to respond to Van Warmerdam’s work. Published by Eye in collaboration with Nieuw Amsterdam.
