It is important for me to begin by describing the works I contributed to the exhibit of “My Örange Cloggs – recent thoughts by Düd Reintjes” (1993) and “My Other Örange Cloggs – Introspection by Düd Reintjes” (1994) as thy helped conceive new offshoot projects in progress today. For instance “The Nature of Multiplicity” (N.o.M), was derived from “Peripharal Vision Art” - Düd Reintjes (Patrick Chevalier and Allan Sutt) while N.o.M’s elements influenced the making of “The Human Shrine.” another work of mine that is presently in inception.
After nearly a 10 years hiatus I resumed my contributions to Reintjes’ works in 2013 as a means to re-discover the liberating process of the thematic. Keeping Düd alive in all his cynical, castigating and mercurial grandeur provides me with the ability to create playfully and imparts sense to artistic creation. What is more I can appreciate as a creator while remaining healthily skeptical and humble about my contribution art creation as a whole which to me is super important.
My present inception for Düd Reindtjes works extend the theme “Specific Sight Art” shown at the “My Other Örange Cloggs” (1994). Where “Specific Sight Art” was framed in a particular space (using the precepts of installation) the extension embraces the prevalent photoenigmatic zeitgeist encouraged by social networking tools. The images are not only considered representations of the artists sight but are proxies of the artist’s actual vision what is seen and framed. It is subversive dissenting art spoofing the trinity of in-situ (site specific), installation and documentation photography. “Kunstzinnige stiershisse exquis!” Exquisite artful bullhooey as Düd may have put it.
Another invaluable reason behind reviving Reintjes was a desire to reconnect with as the original collaborators of the project. In is therefore important to note that this inception of the work remains collaborative as there have been active participation but other members providing their own interpretation of the artists work.
A page remains accessible to these contributors in Facebook named Düd Reintjes (Artist) (https://www.facebook.com/DudReinjes/?ref=hl) where the Düd Reintdjes works are exposed with posting credits given to each collaborators on Facebook the use of various alias of Reintjes also provides a glimpse and scope of the ongoing project and provides the opportunity for enigmatic Düdesque visions to be shared publicly and organically. Searching any of these hashtags will yield at least some positive results for Reintjes works: #düdereinjus, #dudreinjes, #düdreinjes, #düdreindjes, #dudreinjes from Erich Entner, myself (Patrick Chevalier) or Allan Sutt and perhaps more contributors.
My personal goal as contributor is to use keep using this artist identity as a wellhead of mass conception using a collaborative and integrative approach of creating art with free spirited humour and. More works incepted by Düd Reintjes will be posted as such in the future.
