‘Compelled by the dedication to things never exposed’

Wrong Shop Projects is launching with seven remarkable creations by Freeling Waters, a collaboration between artists Gijs Frieling and Job Wouters – a collection of reworked antique cabinets which epitomises contemporary European design culture, championing recycling and celebrating outstanding craftsmanship.

FreelingWaters, Kazimir

Exploring the concept of up-cycling, the seven cabinets showcase the combined talents of Frieling, a painter turned muralist, and Wouters, a graphic designer turned calligrapher. Using a palette of vibrant colours, each stripped and renovated 18th and 19th–century pine cabinet is brought back to life. Combinations of geometrical patterns and imitations of wood and marble feature words, names and poetry. Using traditional handmade paint of pure pigments and casein glue made from milk – as used by Giotto for the bright blue heavens in his Scrovegni chapel and Warhol for his Campbell cans – the resulting colour provides unrivalled intensity and durability.

Historically, these painted cabinets were coveted and passed down through family genera:ons, mainly in the European Alpine regions. Painted inside and out with eye-catching colours, the result is a visually stimulating work that makes a striking statement against a world that is dominated by mass produced objects and reproduced images. Rather than bringing new objects into an overcrowded culture, FreelingWaters applies a thin layer to create a complete visual shift in appearance.
