WIELS
FROM HOME


WIELS is visiting you at home with exclusive content and some tips to bring art from the world directly to you.

This week for our curated film programme, we present two video works by former artists in residence who both take as
their point of departure the work of another artist: In The Man Who from 2019 Yuki Okumura interviews several individuals about their memories of an unnamed conceptual artist, while in Rolling a Joint from 2015 Simnikiwe Buhlungu dissects, annotates, and performs a reading of Spike Lee’s screenplays.

Enjoy!

VIDEO
YUKI OKUMURA, THE MAN WHO, 2019

Composed of a series of interviews conducted by the Japanese artist Yuki Okumura in Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Ostend and Paris from late 2018 to early 2019, this film contains memories, or description of memories, of an unnamed man - seemingly a legendary Conceptual artist - narrated by the nine participating individuals. 
SIMNIKIWE BUHLUNGU, ROLLING A JOINT, 2015
In Rolling a Joint, South African artist Simnikiwe Buhlungu dissects, annotates, and performs a reading of Spike Lee’s screenplays, such as Malcolm X and Do the Right Thing. As an ultimate tribute, Buhlungu rolls its pages into a joint ready to be smoked, for Lee’s words to be inhaled.

Yuki Okumura organized a great workshop in WIELS: Anatomy Fiction and now you can also participate at home. The point is not to make an accurate portrait, but to express what you feel. Share your result with #WIELSfromHome and #AnatomyFiction.
