In the Collection Cabinet new work by poet/artist Maria Barnas enters into dialogue with the conceptual work of Douwe Jan Bakker from the seventies, that belongs to the museum’s permanent collection. The artists meet in their contrarian, playful way of working. For both Bakker and Barnas language plays a crucial role in the development of objects. Does language consist of images? What is the shape of a sound? Can that shape be pronounced? Bakker and Barnas make an effort to communicate what can’t be said, and developed provocative objects for an alternative form of communication.
