Product Description

Following Marije de Wit’s work that shows her contemplative attitude towards sculpture, presentation, image, representation, abstraction, meaning and value, the works in There is so much thinking to be done keep introspecting their own status. The works are things just as much as they are interfaces in between things and thinking about what they are. Sculptural and painterly motifs that are self-invented, taken from ancient art and from the realms of advertisement, ask out loud whether they’re doodles, ornament or image.

As some works are shaped by trackable gestures – meaning that both what is shown and how it is made are equally on display – these works ask at what moment we decide when images are images. In line with De Wit’s belief that constantly refreshing our outlook is the most helpful thing to do, the works are placed in dense groups. This way they are put to work to hold each other in their active situation of perpetual contemplation.
