Review by Josephine Bosma, first posted Friday 06 August 2010
After travelling all the way to Philadelphia to see the collaborative exhibition of the artists Artie Vierkant and Constant Dullaart it was a shock to find an empty space. The show, called ‘Less Less’, a pun on the name of the gallery ‘Extra Extra’, at first glance only consists of a room with a freshly poured concrete floor. As it turns out, the artists have created an invisible network of cables and computers underneath (or rather: in) the floor.
