Dirk Zoete

With Night-Horse °^°HIHA, Zoete has added a new
dimension to his sculptures which are the results of
photographic performative sessions in the artist’s
studio. At certain points during these sessions, he
recognises a standstill that becomes the basis for new
(temporary) figures or future sculptures.
Zoete has created his primitive-looking sculptures of
horse-bodies after a series of drawings („Mountain
Man“, „The Wild Bunch“, „Showing the corpse“), for
which he was inspired by iconic stop-motion photographs
and movies of horses in motion by the British
photographer Eadweard Muybridge.
