THE WIND AMONG THE REEDS
LEONARDO VANDAHL

PRESENTED BY TABLEAU
MARCH 2019
LEONARDO VANDAHL GREW UP CLOSE TO A BOG WHERE HE SPENT HOURS FLEEING FROM REALITY AMONG THE REEDS. AN IMAGE THAT HAS MEANT A GREAT DEAL TO THE ARTIST AND HIS WORK THE PAST YEARS. FURTHERMORE IT IS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TITLE THE WIND AMONGST THE REEDS, WHICH IS ALSO THE TITLE OF A COLLECTION OF POEMS BY THE LATE IRISH WRITER W.B. YEATS.

IT SHOWCASES DIFFERENT MEDIUMS INCLUDING PAINTINGS, SCULPTURE, INSTALLATIONS, FILM AND DRAWINGS ALL DEALING WITH THE THEME OF ‘NEGATIVE CAPABILITY’. A TERM FIRST USED BY THE ROMANTIC POET JOHN KEATS TO DESCRIBE THE PURSUING OF ARTISTIC BEAUTY - EVEN WHEN IT LEADS TO INTELLECTUAL CONFUSION AND UNCERTAINTY. IT IS DESCRIBING THE ABILITY OF AN INDIVIDUAL TO PERCEIVE, THINK AND OPERATE BEYOND A PREDETERMINED CAPACITY OF THE HUMAN BEING; A CRUCIAL POINT IN VANDAL’S WORK.
