De zucht (The sigh), 2015

De zucht (The sigh), 2015
bandoneon, instruction label, wood, lacker
42 x 27 x 25 cm

Note / De zucht is a performative work in which air is involved. You hear one tone when you stretch the bandoneon and then, when you release it, with the help of the air valve, it’s as though you hear a sigh.
MvW: ‘At the time I didn’t know that the word bandoneon came from Heinrich Band, the inventor of the instrument and ‘Fueye’ is tango-speak for bandoneon, meaning “bellows”or “lung”. It was only after I had named the work, that I discovered that the so-called “suspiros” of this instrument literally means the sighing of the bandoneon.’

Note / In tourist shops, nothing is as fleeting as the trinkets that are supplemented once again every season with a new eye-catcher. Such as the thermal mug that reacts to differences in temperature; when filled, the heat of the coffee or tea makes an image appear. MvW: ‘After pouring in the hot tea, a panoramic cityscape gradually crawled up from the bottom to the top. I’d never previously seen a vertical film pass before my eyes.’
