This summer Wieteke Heldens has a duo-exhibition in Barcelona at Hans & Fritz Contemporary gallery. 
THINGS ONLY I KNOW ABOUT TIM / THINGS ONLY I KNOW ABOUT WIETEKE
until September 9th, 2017            

This is their first duo show together  displaying an installation of sculptures, paintings, drawings  and video. The  exhibition  consists  of  an  interactive  experience,  where  the  spectator  is  revealed  important features the  artists  know  about  themselves, each  other  and  the  friends  they  have  in common.

This  artistic  bond  has  its  starting point  ten  years  ago  in  The  Hague.   Both  artists  had  individual  studio visits  with  art critic  and  writer,  Philip  Peters  whom later  became  a  key  figure in  their  careers. Once  again, he  will  also  play  an active role in  this  exhibition.  At  his  office,  Philip has a chair that  used  to  be  his  father´s. According  to  him,  the chair not only represents his father but  is  his father.  This personal anecdote  became the  starting point when developing  this  exhibition.

Magical and  intimate  coincidences  of object and condition reveal a personal journey  into  their  artistic universe.  At first glance, the work of Tim and Wieteke is not personal at all – rather it could be classified as amusing, banal, abstract and conceptual. But when observed more intimately every work is unique, distinct and profound.

The  spectator  will  be  drawn into an intimate bubble  the artists  have  created – carefully unfolding things only  Wieteke  knows  about  TIM BREUKERS and  things  only  Tim  knows  about  WIETEKE HELDENS.
