STUDIO MAKKINK & BEY – WashHouse
11 September–30 October 2010
For their solo exhibition at HELMRINDERKNECHT, Studio Makkink & Bey has created a site-specific walk through the three- dimensional landscape of a rural village. Mohair woollen blankets hanging on a clothesline give shape to the space and divide it. Individually woven patterns and lines become a house’s exterior walls or reflect the imagery of the surrounding landscape. The washing line is draped in between simple wooden posts. Although these posts function as a laundry rack within the space, within the fictive landscape they become trees.
