The Trouble With Value
What practices bring us closer to understanding the potential of art to represent different notions of value in the contemporary? How can we counter the certain apathy of the contemporary to engage with positions that resist this mood and present us with challenging perspectives on value? The project attempts to locate artistic and institutional practices that offer viewpoints beyond the strategy of blending-in and conforming to the rules.
Polaroid
Polaroid photo of the former Polaroid factory in Enschede. I photographed the logo in 2001 as research for 'Wij', an exhibition at Kunstvereniging Diepenheim investigating the cultural identity of the Twente region. The factory closed in 2008 and the text sign has been removed in 2009. Polaroid is an edition of 20, still for sale on frenhofer.nl.
Rendez Vous met Frans Hals
Ter ere van de opening van het vernieuwde Frans Hals Museum staat in de locaties Hof en Hal de ontmoeting tussen originele en fictieve schilderijen van Frans Hals en interpretaties van kunstkenners en kunstenaars centraal. Door de hele tentoonstelling weerklinkt een koor van verschillende stemmen: schilders en fotografen, conservatoren en kunsthistorici reageren op eigenzinnige en subjectieve manieren op de schilderijen van de Haarlemse virtuoos.
