Exhibition — Two in the Wave

You are invited to the exhibition Two in the Wave showing works by Thomas Jenkins and Batia Suter, opening on April 12th, 2013 at PrintRoom in Rotterdam…

“The exhibition ‘Two in the Wave’ presents two works concerned with the artistic treatment of printed–matter and the book in light of our surrounding seas, oceans and the connotations these seemingly boundless expanses put forward. As advanced by the two works, there is a sensible retreat from the documentary image to its recovery in the element of the fictional. For instance, both works share a formal approach towards their display – evoking the characteristics of displaying scientific material – whereas their contents disclose a certain ambiguity towards the treatment of information. In that, the works foreground the possibility of generating alternative knowledge through the displacement and fictionalisation of collected imagery, as well as by showing the construction of systems of representation and the various readings and stories this puts forward.”
