Spotted last Thursday night at Dashwood
bookstore was Amsterdam-based photography couple, Maurice
Scheltens & Liesbeth Abbenes. Fresh off their first
retrospective exhibition at Museum Jan Cunen, they were lending
their John Hancock's to their newest book Unfolded - Scheltens and
Unfolded allows you to delve deep into the exhibition
just by turning to the next page. While offering views of the
museum and the elegantly placed work of Scheltens & Abbenes,
you're then thrust into the very textures of the museum walls and
prints that adorn it. The experience of Unfolded is similar to
navigating a cyber space, like that of the Google Art Project, yet
in your very hand. It is curated with a distinctive and decisive
point of view that directs the viewers throughout the pages.
The museum in the book is quiet and there is no closing time. It
provides a precious solitude complimenting Scheltens & Abbenes'
minimal and carefully composed work.
Unfolded - Scheltens and Abbenes is on view till August 26th
2012 at Museum Jan Cunen.
