Interview with Wayne Horse:

Could you please tell us something about yourself and your artistic background?

Willehad Eilers aka Wayne Horse is a german artist who lives and works in Amsterdam, NL. His work ranges from video and drawing to performance and installation. Inspired by fables and modern cultures never ending believe in youth, the individual and success, Eilers creates situations, rather than closed stories. The aim being to leave space to breathe for story and spectator. A story will evolve by itself out of small apparently unconnected fragments, different to every spectator. Besides a caustic, sharp humor, his work also contains a childlike playfulness. Moviescenarios are written during the editing process. Stories come together without ever being thought up. Eilers has exhibited among other places at the biennale in venice, paradise row gallery in london and the central museum in utrecht. During the years he received various prices and honors. Foremost honors.

Tell us something about the initial idea and the work process

There was no initial idea, all there was was time and a boxing doll.

How did you make your choices concerning cutting, music?

the original soundtrack was slowed down with the footage.

Looking back – would you have done something different if known before?

No, I rather do something new with the knowledge I gained.

On what new project are you working at the moment?

‘Great tales of moral’ is keeping me busy these days. Next to that I am making some last changes to my movie ‘the illmannered milkman’ and I am working together with abner preis, helping the dogs of shame to get their first release ‘shiny shit’ done. Its scheduled to be finished in september.
