Working as a collective since 2000, gerlach en koop apply repetition, copying, or reuse to render things visible. Through displacement and misplacement, omissions, erring, and making mistakes, they enact their fascination with the minute differences between two identical things. The smaller the distance, the more interesting a thing can be. Using objects, readymades, architectural interventions, sculptural or graphic images, words or gestures, they create works that are both straightforward and sophisticated.
Choses tuées is published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition held at de Appel arts centre in Amsterdam. With photographs by Kristien Daem and text contributions by Lorenzo Benedetti, Valentina Desideri, Nickel van Duijvenboden, Maxine Kopsa, Candice Lin, Raimundas Malasauaskas.
