I've Got Something in My Eye
Objects, once acquired for specific reasons, are in a constant flux of change, in the context and dynamics of a collection (in continuous discourse with and in the company of other concepts and perceptions), as well as in time.

In this dynamic of discourse and comodification one sometimes tends to overlook their initial intention and reason for existence. We considered compiling this exhibition as a process of 'uploading with circumstantial evidence', thus proposing a new circle of communication between different types of 'reflections'. By creating tensions, lines and links between the works, spaces and different types of information we aim for a set-up in which works, objects and documents can manifest themselves as stepping-stones.

Our knowledge is only based on our experiences and is therefore certainly not complete being always inflected by directions we develop through our own artistic practice.

With I've Got Something in My Eye we critically investigate the limits and possibilities of the collection as a whole as well as our own boundaries,
I've Got Something in My Eye
in order to use the exhibition-making process as an opportunity for people, works and sources of knowledge to meet, exchange, collide and discuss.
