waxy pith :: new platform for the contemporary arts

WAXY PITH is a seriously new platform for the contemporary arts, functioning in Brussels, Oslo, and further afield. WAXY PITH nurtures genuine artistic practice in which the essence of the work is palpable. Possessing a decidedly itinerant format within a dynamic organic structure, WAXY PITH presents striking works in varying contexts.

Works presented by WAXY PITH are imbued with extraordinary depth, created by artists possessing a rigorous sense of individuality and integrity; the works are expansive, innately poetic, resonant. All creative genres are embraced; presented are important, unfamiliar or undiscovered works of an exceptional standard, their inherent meaningfulness is derived from the nature and quality of the work itself. WAXY PITH deems that the intrinsic content of a work of art defines its true value.

The presenting and selective interweaving of visual art, performance, spoken word, music, dance, film, literature, and other forms of merited creative expression, introduce into the programme a rich repertoire of material, while the formation of selective collaborations brings further dimensionality. By way of a finely tuned curatorial process, cross-links are continually forged, ever widening the range of artists, galleries, and private individuals with whom WAXY PITH works.

Who it is

Jodie Hruby is the creative force at WAXY PITH. As an architect, artist, curator, writer, critic, poet, and catalyst, Jodie treats the WAXY PITH platform as an extension of her own artistic practice, curating a complex programme of activity, selecting and working closely with the artists. Prior to founding WAXY PITH, Jodie created and developed Naked State, a platform housed in a downtown Brussels gallery space. There she directed and curated a varied programme that included exhibitions, collaborations, performances, dance, music and film.

Olve Sande is a collaborative partner at WAXY PITH. A visual artist based in Oslo, he is also the facilitator for WAXY PITH presentations in Norway.

Deborah Coûteaux is the top assistant at WAXY PITH. She performs a plethora of functions essential to the successful operation of the platform.

Members are our precious loves, sincerely and enthusiastically supporting and contributing to the programme in multifarious ways.
