Andy Wauman (b.1975, Wilrijk, Belgium) is an artist and writer who protests against cynicism, working to regain the original ideological meaning of common metaphors and symbols. He says: “[I prefer] the sensuality and romantic value of the materials of the street, the ones the vagabond knows better than the bourgeois. Rather than a political activist, I like to call myself a poetical terrorist.” Wauman has exhibited internationally, with solo exhibitions at institutions such as Wonderloch Kellerland (Berlin), the National Museum of Glass (The Netherlands), Art Statements Gallery (Hong Kong), Debuck gallery (Chelsea, NY) and Deweer gallery (Belgium). He worked on the scenography for voetvolk, a dance performance group of lisbeth gruwez, as well as performed with trash metal band Toxic Shock at SecondROOM (Belgium). In 2014, he was a resident for the International Studio & Curatorial Program. Currently, the artist splits his time between New York and Berlin.
