‘Inspired by a shared interest in the striking dress codes of various social groups, the Rotterdam-based photographic team of Ari Versluis & Ellie Uyttenbroek have been systematically hamstringing such permutations of received identity for sixteen years. They call their series Exactitudes, a contraction of “exact” and “attitudes”. It’s August Sander and Eugène Atget turned on their heads by Bernd and Hilla Becher – a direct assault on the mythic formula that photography plus the street equals authenticity.’
Gil Blank ,INFLUENCE Magazine, NYC

A bottle opener might be the best known example for an object that is often needed but rarely at hand in the crucial moment. In these situations, the creativity of the seeker decides which substitute is applied.
The exhibition „Substitutes“ curated by Stefanie Seidl and Fabian Baumann will present the personal substitutes of 40 selected designers, artists, architects and photographers along with the objects they replace. As a pair they tell their stories to the viewer.

Der Flaschenöffner ist wahrscheinlich das bekannteste Beispiel für einen Gegenstand, der oft benötigt wird, aber in der entscheidenen Situation selten zur Hand ist.
In diesen Situationen entscheidet die Kreativiät des Suchenden darüber, welcher Ersatz zum Einsatz kommt.

In der von Stefanie Seidl und Fabian Baumann konzipierten Ausstellung werden die 
persönlichen „Substitutes“ von 40 ausgewählten Designern, Künstlern, Architekten und Fotografen neben den Gegenständen präsentiert, die Sie ersetzen.
Als Paare erzählen Sie dem Betrachter ihre Geschichte.
