A lot of effort for a bad joke

The solo exhibition A lot of effort for a bad joke combines prints, commodities, photographs and leftovers from old studio buildings together in a non-hierarchical installation. Spatial interventions like the diagonal pedestal An object that crosses the space diagonally and allows visitors to move around it emphasize the gallery’s architecture and its limitations. Vertical Movement (Display time!) and Landscape with ornamented figures imitate the shape and size of door handles or banisters, but by adding a new, displaying function to the objects they are no longer able to serve their original purpose. At the other side of the gallery, a remnant from Hollander’s old studio makes a half-hearted attempt to redeem this lost function.
