With our latest exhibition 'Double Up’, a project conceived by Maurice van Tellingen, we’ve invited thirteen Dutch artists to reflect on the phenomenon of uniqueness in their artistic production.

In the visual arts, the manifestation of the work of art, object or idea, arises from an inspired moment as a unique phenomenon, sublime in the strictest sense: non-repeatable, while, in other disciplines—theatre, music or dance—repetition is inherently part of the artistic process; indeed, it perfects the work.

To investigate the meaning of "uniqueness" within the visual arts, the artists were asked to perform a work twice—not a mechanical copy, but a work that is made under equal conditions and with the same techniques.

Bringing these ‘doubles’ together demonstrates that repetition cannot take place without change. Existence itself is in a permanent state of flux so nothing is equal to anything. But which change is visible and which is not? What influence will change have on the effect of the art work? Does the viewer actually undergo the same experience when repeatedly viewing the same art work? Does the experience of a work of art change when an almost identical work hangs next to it?

'Double Up' therefore offers, in addition to an exquisite collection of 'unique' works of art, plenty of room for reflection on this subject.

Please RSVP by phone or email to schedule a visit.
