The Govenor, Members of the Provincial Council and Provincial Clerk of West Flanders are pleased to invite you to the presentation WIM WAUMAN | LET'S MEET HALF WAY, on October 11th and 12th in Be-Part, platform for contemporary art, Westerlaan 17, 8970, Waregem, Belgium.

As part of his residency program this year in Be-Part, photographer Wim Wauman (°1976, Dendermonde) regularly employs its carpenter's workshop. Under the title Let's Meet Halfway, the artist will present, in his Be-Part studio, the first works from a new series, which will culminate in the solo exhibition WIM WAUMAN | FALSE FRIENDS in September 2015 at Roberto Polo Gallery. An illustrated catalogue with a text by Martin Barnes, Senior Curator, Photographs, Word and Image Department of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, will be published by Roberto Polo Gallery for the occasion.

After his line drawings, Wim Wauman constructs geometric assemblages and collages in various woods and veneers, which serve as the basis for his photographic compositions. Following his 2013 series PARAPHERNALIA, these visually-constructed riddles contain elements charged with meaning, which were suggested and donated by guest artists.
