Foam presents the largest museum solo exhibition of the artist duo Scheltens & Abbenes so far. The duo is seen as the most progressive still-life photographers in the Netherlands today. Maurice Scheltens (1972) and Liesbeth Abbenes (1970) have managed to build an international artistic practice at the intersection of commissioned and autonomous photography.
Especially for this exhibition at Foam, the artist duo made a video installation. In addition to this installation, the exhibition consists of a large number of works that provide insight into the extensive body of work created by Scheltens & Abbenes over the last eighteen years.
The exhibition will be opened on Thursday 14 March by Ernst van der Hoeven, co-editor in chief and art director at MacMuffin, Magazine on the Life of Things. You are welcome from 17.30 hours onwards.
The exhibition is on view until 5 June 2019.
The exhibition Scheltens & Abbenes – ZEEN is made possible by BeamSystems, the Mondriaan Fund and Kleurgamma Fine-Art Photolab. Courtesy of The Ravestijn Gallery Amsterdam.
