Irish artist Teresa Gillespie will create new work in response to the exhibition Op Losse Schroeven, curated by Wim Beeren. This ground-breaking group exhibition appeared at the same time as Szeemann’s When Attitudes Become Form, and was overshadowed owing to Szeemann’s international renown and Beeren’s somewhat less flamboyant personality. Through the material unpacking of a specially devised sculptural object, Gillespie coerces the presenter into enacting a critique of Beeren's practice, and of our attempt to subjectively understand it, at this removed level.
