Bien Trouvé

Museum voor Moderne Kunst Arnhem 1989

In the centre of the chapel in the Museum for Modern Art in Arnhem, five realists are seated at a round table that is too high and too wide. The realists, self-portraits by Carel Willink, Charlie Toorop, Edgar Fernhout, Chris Lebeau and Dick Ket (selected from the museum’s collection) fade into their own mirrored images on a monitor, while in the background an orchestra can be heard tuning and fragments of conversations are buzzing. The mirroring occurs on many levels, which the spectators can witness when they sit down at the table.
