Vernissage le jeudi 14 octobre 2010
Ouverture du 15 octobre au 27 novembre 2010
AN EXHIBITION OF INDIVIDUAL WORKS AND RECENT COLLABORATIONS
Although they have collaborated for many years, now for the first time, Mother and Daughter combine forces in an exhibition. In "Room for Thought" Madelon & Charlie plan to exhibit separate works with a collaborative piece joining the two exhibitions in the middle which will overlap and merge.

The fact that they are related means that one can see similar themes in their Art - though they have chosen different tools and vocabularies with which to express them-selves. Their aesthetics are derived from 'celebrating everything you have no control over', thus allowing random connections, accidental absurdities; the boring, the ugly and the mundane to inform their work and to point out its fragile or robust beauty.

Madelon will be exhibiting all of her new works since her show at the Architecture Association as well as a selection of her earlier paintings, her new work will include her "Toy Paintings", her "Life-Size Mind Game", as well as her "Idol Tower" and "Chess Board" pieces. For her part, Charlie will exhibit a series of 5 different windows to give the effect of standing in a living room and looking out onto five different global cities. Within a separated space is their collaborative work in which Madelon & Charlie are planning on creating a panopticon, a circular plywood structure which will be a series of rooms containing dramatic imaginary scenes, using both photographs and objects. As a testament to their wonderment and curiosity about the new condition of our multi-cultural world, for this exhibition they have created a parallel universe, where good taste, formal ideals and the notion of perfection have become obsolete, where all ideologies and disciplines are embraced and placed side by side, co-existing without conflict. Where each scene tells its own story, un-judged and rejoiced.

The exhibition is supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
