Fold gallery is pleased to present a two person exhibition of new paintings, drawings and sculpture by Willem Weismann and Lutz Driessen
Earlier this year these two artists collaborated on a book of drawings which will also be shown at the gallery. Herein the artists produced 10 halves of a double-page drawing with the general idea of still life, each completing the other side of each drawing. This is similar to the Surrealist game exquisite corpse", where the design of the whole image is not subjected to the hand of the artist but to chance. In contrast to the Surrealists, they looked at each other's drawings and attempted to respond to what was already there. This resulted in a surprising mix of drawings foregrounding the artists' compatibilities and points of departure. The gallery space will operate in the same vein, establishing a tension where questions about subject, motivation and representation are answered and questioned in various ways.
