Hand sawn and painted mdf, 2009.
A piece I made for the Echt tHEMA groupshow at NP3 in Groningen. It was a show where artists were invited to reflect on the practice of themed group exhibitions. Or as their website puts it:
“tHEMA is a content research with a visual, virtual, or theoretical basis. tHEMA is a research inside/outside the context of a strictly composed theme-exhibition. tHEMA is searching for the fundamental principles of the theme exhibition and the endless repetition of demarcating and framing of ideas.”
Over a period of 6 weeks artists were invited to come to the exhibition space to reflect on what was going on. As I was one of the first to do so the only thing present in the space was the exhibition logo painted on one of the walls. After careful consideration I decided to add two dutch words.
The letter font is the same as used by Hema, a Dutch chain of stores.
