  • About the work
Medium: Blow-dried PVC Squadron Me is a series of collages that are based on the drawings on the emblems that each pilot of an air force fighter squadron has sticked on his jacket. Together these works form a fictional timeline of squadrons from its very first beginning to the present.

About the Artist

1979 , Netherlands

Wouter Klein Velderman (1979, Amsterdam) earned his MFA in 2009 from the Sandberg Institute after completing his studies at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, where he now teaches. Among other venues, his work has been shown at art events in public spaces, museums and galleries like Stedelijk Museum, Hertogenbosch, W139, Gimme Shelter Foundation, CBK Amsterdam, Kunstvereniging Diepenheim, Casa Testori, Milano, Centro per l’arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci, Prato. Klein Velderman is also a co-founder of the Beeld Hal Werk exhibit and KAFANA in Amsterdam, and he has collaborated with the Hungarian choreo- grapher Krisztina de Châtel in the performance UT (OET) with a series of sculptures. The materials and themes that Wouter Klein Velderman uses for his sculptures and installations often have an industrial-like character. Metal, PVC-canvas and wood are the ingredients to depict matters like transport, mobility and storage. These constituent elements could result into a storage rack, a shipping container, or a complete factory site. Even a whale on the streets of a small Dutch harbour village or a giant Mickey Mouse in the jungle of Surinam becomes a somehow functional object. Even though their subjects tend to have an industrial character, the sculptures have quite an opposite feeling to them: vulnerable, delicate, refined.
