Alexandra Werlich, Matthijs Rensman

In conversation with
Selma van Panhuis

As part of the exhibition: Excellent (10+ Or Better),
This took place before the opening on 02/06/2009

The artists invited to realize a project at 1646 are asked to engage in conversation with a correspondent via email or DM, be it someone previously unknown to them or whom they’re already familiar with.

This conversation spans the period before an exhibition is completed. 1646 invites the correspondent at the other end of this exchange to ask questions so they may be guided through the artist’s decision-making process and how their initial ideas develop toward completion. It provides insight into the artist’s body of work and is intended to paint a picture of the otherwise untraceable choices that constitute the artist’s practice.


About Alexandra Werlich, Matthijs Rensman: Two artists whose collaboration has started as early as their first year of study at the Academy of Fine Arts. Their work is often massive total installations close to megalomania. But underlying the big, macho physical presence of their work in the space is a good amount of subtlety and poignant genuineness. The films, featuring in their installations, are at the core of their work. These, contrasting and balancing the direct force of the presentation, make for an intimate experience, leaving a voyeuristic imprint on the viewer.
