Willehad Eilers / Wayne Horse (1981) is a German artist who lives and works in Amsterdam, where he graduated from the Royal Academy of Arts. In his work, which ranges from video to drawing to performance, Horse experiments with different ways of storytelling. He provokes the story to tell itself. The work deals with modern day society, focusing on the absurdities and oddness of day-to-day life and routines.
Horse: "The show at Unruly is called ‘Youth Wars’ and deals with youth. Primarily with their marks, left behind on bus stops or high school toilets. I am fascinated by their rawness and pureness. I try to read the stories, the spirit and attitude of these marks and place them into a greater context. Some of the deepest and most charming of these findings will be reinterpreted for this exhibition."
