Unfolded

Spotted last Thursday night at Dashwood bookstore was Amsterdam-based photography couple, Maurice Scheltens & Liesbeth Abbenes.  Fresh off their first retrospective exhibition at Museum Jan Cunen, they were lending their John Hancock's to their newest book Unfolded - Scheltens and Abbenes.

Unfolded allows you to delve deep into the exhibition just by turning to the next page. While offering views of the museum and the elegantly placed work of Scheltens & Abbenes, you're then thrust into the very textures of the museum walls and prints that adorn it. The experience of Unfolded is similar to navigating a cyber space, like that of the Google Art Project, yet in your very hand. It is curated with a distinctive and decisive point of view that directs the viewers throughout the pages. The museum in the book is quiet and there is no closing time. It provides a precious solitude complimenting Scheltens & Abbenes' minimal and carefully composed work.
