Landscape with Bear

On invitation by the curatorial group of the contemporary art center, de Appel, the visual concept, communication, and display was designed for the collaborative curatorial show Landscape with Bear. All materials, even posters, are made with or upon existing material from de Appel archive.

The De Appel Archive houses a multitude of objects – valuable works of art, props and ephemeral materials from performances, and unidentified materials – which have gradually become known as the “ Collection (Unintended) ”. The exhibition presents objects from this collection that blur the boundaries between artwork and presentation. In addition to works by well-known names in contemporary art, objects of enigmatic provenance and works of which the original intention and the identity of the authors are unknown are also on display. Landscape with Bear builds on the question of what new connections can be created between the fragmentary, the uncertain and the unstable?
