About the exhibition:

What are you looking at? 

Can you feel, walking through the city, transported out of yourself, your body getting emptied by the eyes: calls, interpellations, multiple sollicitations, are proposing to your living body copies of yourself, more beautiful, smiling, happy. 

Seeing, looking, watching, window shopping, consuming, surveilling, gumshoeing. Your body is getting emptied, as the City becomes a slippery surface for the eyes.

Here, gaze is questioned as both a material and a tool. Feel the materiality of your gaze, let it bump against the paved walls and streets. Let it bounce on the mirrored glass, rather than cross it. Let it get lost in the foggy depth of frosted glass.


Mathild Clerc-Verhoeven was selected for Rietveld Review(ed) 2021 and has been offered the opportunity to make an exhibition at Eight Cubic Meters (the academy’s public gallery in the city centre of Amsterdam) and thus bring the work to a new audience in a new context.
