The first monographic exhibition at the new venue dedicated to the work of Dan Walwin, a British artist based in the Netherlands.

Imagine waking up in a world still waiting to be discovered, a world in which an entirely new language needs to be invented to express your observations. A world both unknown and familiar, but without drama. And yet it stands or falls with individual values that are grounded in a new community, too. A community that is somehow already familiar, and even though you are new to it, you become a calm and focused observer.

In the new exhibition Relief, Dan Walwin makes fictional reconstructions of seemingly familiar environments through video, sound, sculptures, and installations. His world offers a set of personal narratives that create a world of logic for themselves.
