Volkert van der Wijk
Movement as a starting point
Volkert vdWijk

Volkert van der Wijk is a sculptor and a scientist. In his atelier in Delft he creates large and small moving (kinetic) sculptures of stainless steel and bronze which have expressive motion as a starting point. Mechanism kinematics and dynamics, balance, and human interaction are used as the main elements for this. As a spectator you set his sculptures in motion yourself, completely immersing yourself in the pervasive dynamics. During Change you will have every opportunity to do so.
