'Mr. Deeds goes to town - W139
2 feb. t/m 2 maart
Opening Friday 1 February 21:00
an exhibition from Floor van Keulen met:
Frank Koolen, Kasper Jacobs, Joris Lindhout, Lily van der Stokker, Moritz Ebinger, Daragh Reeves, Jan Pieter Fokkens, Marijn van Kreij, Michiel Romeijn and Kasper Jacobs.
The film 'Mr. Deeds goes to town ' by Frank Capra (1936) originated the notion of 'doodling '. The new exhibition in W139 owes something to both film and drawing. Drawing as a fluid line that takes different shapes, film as a shrouded plane that is illuminated and extinguished. The works hover between drawing and writing, registering and narrating. Consciously, unconsciously, consciously. The simple addition of a new letter would suddenly enable an infinity of new words. From the cave by torchlight to the self-illuminating screen; the exhibition was devised within the consciousness of this time-span.
