The exposition at the Nederlandsche Bank shows an overview of various works.
Nine spacious showcases are the frameworks for new work and for existing works, that is presented in a new perspective.
In the first two showcases the films Another day en 6’54’’ are shown.
The third showcase exhibits ‘Goudbalans’. On both sides, both up and under, of the sheet of glass, functioning as the middle shelf of the showcase, are two hundred mini gold bars piled up in a straight line. The reflection makes it seem as if the gold bars are pierced through the sheet of glass.
The fourth showcase displays 3289 plastic cups of the Douwe Egberts coffee machines found throughout the building, with an assembled weight that equals the weight of one DNB gold bar. The cups are piled up and form an endless tube that resembles intestines.
In the fifth showcase on both sides of the window frame are 100 photo prints with images of scaffoldings with coloured covers around buildings in the Netherlands and abroad. The pictures are hung behind the glass, but fixed with two small magnets, one on the inside and one on the outside of the window frame. This makes it tangible for visitors.
The sixth showcase shows the work RGB plus a time-lapse video of 24 hours view from the studio. RGB is a scale model of the studio at the Rijksakademie, containing three scaled down video screens (disassembled iPods) on which a video is to be seen of the wall being painted in red, green or blue.
The seventh showcase contains a Super 8 projector with a projecting screen. The tape loops through the showcase. A wireless button on the outside of the window frame starts the film and has it play for 20 seconds. The film shows a juggler who has been standing outside the Nederlansche Bank building for years on end. The film has been shot ten years ago.
The eighth showcase shows a part of the installation ‘Replaced’. It is the broken LCD TV screen on a piece of furniture with a DVD player. The image generated by the LCD screen changes regularly.
The ninth and last showcase contains a slide projector with images of a spinning top. By pushing a wireless button a carousel projector starts running and shows us slides of the spinning top for half a minute. The carousel projector goes from slide to slide rapidly, thus creating an animation with the projected slides.
