Erik Wesselo

Erik Wesselo (1965)

Lives in Amsterdam, NL. Works in Amsterdam, NL.

Erik Wesselo is a Dutch conceptual artist whose work comprises performances, videos, photographs and drawings. The most important element of Wesselo's work is time. All of his films are carefully edited in terms of duration, speed and movement. Slow motion and extensive duration forces the spectator to stop and watch. Repetitious movement brings a meditative stillness to the works. Wesselo proves to be a master of timing and dramatic effect. Virtuously playing with the spectator's expectancy and patience his narrations unravel graciously, without haste.
