Ger van Elk – Flatscreens

April 26th, 2014 - September 28th, 2014

In his so-called flatscreens, Dutch artist Ger van Elk transforms existing paintings into moving images. A number of these works are based on neo-impressionist paintings by Georges Seurat, Paul Signac and Henri Edmond Cross. On the occasion of the Georges Seurat exhibition, the museum is showing this series of flatscreens in a complementary presentation. This is the first time that Van Elk’s Snow over Seurat and Seurat’s La Grève de Bas-Butin à Honfleur, upon which it is based, are being shown simultaneously.

Simon Starling - Blue, Red, Yellow, Djungel

April 19th, 2014 - September 28th, 2014

Blue, Red, Yellow, Djungel (2002) by Simon Starling (b. 1967, Epsom) investigates the functionality of the artistic process. The work consists of an enormous, hand-printed curtain – a replica of a famous 1928 design by Josef Frank – and all the materials that were needed to make the curtain, from the tree cut down in Trinidad on 22 March 2002 to the tables on which the work was done and the pots of dye used in printing the pattern. It seems obvious that the time-consuming process of making the replica has no economic utility.
