Marres presents a selection of Vedute, a collection of threedimensional objects, each measuring 44 x 32 x 7 cm in closed form.
Unlike books, 3D-manuscripts reveal their content as visual statements. Some are directly accessible, others must be unfolded, and yet others need to be performed; the variety is endless. Marres presents a large selection of Vedute, including works by Peter Struycken, Marina Abramovic, JCJ VanderHeyden, Paul Panhuysen, 75B, Adriaan Geuze, Marlies Dekkers and Krijn de Koning.
The exhibition also features a new series of Vedute objects that have been made in 2013 and 2014 at academies of fine arts, design and architecture throughout the Netherlands. Marres opens its whole house, including the basement, attic, office and icehouse for this special, multi-coloured collection, with film, text, and touchable. The exhibition promises to be an intense experience that leads to the secret corners of the Marres house.
The Vedute Foundation was established in 1991. In its 22 years, the collection has grown to more than 200 spatial manuscripts. The New Institute manages the collection.
