Wyn Geleynse
Trop haut, trop bas, trop loin

Originally from Rotterdam, Wyn Geleynse presents a group of four enigmatic pbject-screen works – or micro-theatres – inviting the viewer to appreciate their peculiar scenes up close. These works show video images of the artist as a clumsy tightrope walker, disguised as Pinocchio or dressed in a business suit, suspended in mid-air. Geleynse portrays the role of solitary characters, creating the portrait of a creature removed from his environment. Through this miniaturized world of the spectacular, the artist provides a view of his own existence with a subtle mix of irony and humanity.
