Designers Kiki van Eijk and Joost van Bleiswijk developed themselves (and each other) into a household name in the world of design. They combine startling work with commissions for institutions such as Rijksmuseum, Hermès, Cor Unum and Murano
Kiki & Joost team up with the iconic Rijksmuseum, working closely with the museum’s curator Femke Diercks to design a show about the unseen Traces of the creative process.
As they say goodbye to their old studio they leave behind visible and invisible traces: paint, cracks, marks, signs, all reminders of the process of making.
This exhibition displays pieces in the emptiness of the industrial space, as traces left behind, as remnants of an old civilization, transitory but also strongly present and connected to the space that had generated them. There is a sense of absence and presence that underline the intimate connection that creation has with its own environment.
The curator paired them carefully with images and details of masterpieces from the Rijksmuseum’s collection to explore those unnoticed marks, their own traces of creation present in the artwork.
The work illustrates the endless creative possibilities of Rijksstudio and the intimate relationship the duo has with the Rijksmuseum and their heritage.
PLAN-B has been Kiki&Joost’s creative hub for the last three years, a space that helped them to foster creative projects and functioned as a platform to produce and make.
