What it is
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 content, while the formation of selective collaborations imparts 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.
