The artist duo experiments with converting spatial dimensions into flat surfaces and explore intensively photography’s potential for creating illusion.
Explore the works in the exhibition undisturbed for hours on end. In the first week of the exhibition, Foam opens the doors for a visit and complimentary guided tours.
Member Hours are open to Foam support members and employees of Foam's corporate partners. Present your membership or employee card for admission to the museum.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Artist duo Maurice Scheltens and Liesbeth Abbenes are the sum total of a still-life photographer and the creative craftsmanship of an artist. Essential to their work is the laboratory process in the studio where they construct their settings with an attitude of conceptualization and solution-led thinking, regardless of whether they are editing or tackling commissioned or independent artistic work.
