By Gavin Wade

Gavin Wade has developed sculptures that function as structures on which artworks are shown. He loosely based these display units on exhibition ideas from two 20th-century architects: Frederick Kiesler and Adolf Krischanitz, who propagated dynamic spatial suspension systems over white walls in neutral spaces. The shapes of Wade’s display units are derived from letters of the alphabet, hence the name Z-Type. The Z-Type refers to the zoo, and for the Frans Hals Museum, Wade has taken less well-known works from the museum’s collection and exhibited them on these (suspension) systems.   Just like the wild (but caged) animals in the zoo, all the works in an exhibition fight for the viewer’s attention. Wade wants to show that the works change their meaning by the way they are presented here.
