Dick Verdult

In conversation with
Florencia Portocarrero

As part of the exhibition: Inklusief Dick Verdult
This took place before the opening on 05/30/2014

The artists invited to realize a project at 1646 are asked to engage in conversation with a correspondent via email or DM, be it someone previously unknown to them or whom they’re already familiar with.

This conversation spans the period before an exhibition is completed. 1646 invites the correspondent at the other end of this exchange to ask questions so they may be guided through the artist’s decision-making process and how their initial ideas develop toward completion. It provides insight into the artist’s body of work and is intended to paint a picture of the otherwise untraceable choices that constitute the artist’s practice.


About Dick Verdult: Verdult’s (1954, Netherlands) work encompasses film, performance, graphics, drawing, radioshows, text and music. Verdult has produced many independent films, worked as a filmmaker and editor for VPRO television, in addition to founding several art groups, including the IBW (Instituut voor Betaalbare Waanzin / Institute for Affordable Lunacy)) and Festicumex, (a festival for a non-existent music genre). As a visual artist and musician in the experimental Cumbia music, he has acquired a cult status, well known by the name of Dick El Demasiado, especially in South America, Russia and Japan. Recently Verdult has had solo shows in the Van Abbe Museum, at Annet Gelink Gallery, Museo El Chopo in Mexico and he represented The Netherlands at the Gwangju Biennial.
