TILO&TONI | PARK HOTEL



 

The exhibition THOMAS USCHI CHRIS & DAVID, solo show by TILO & TONI opens on tuesday 19 september at 7pm as a site-specific intervention of the artists inside the spaces of Park Hotel, Amsterdam.

 

The show is conceived to be a broad reflection on handicraft productions and is composed by 22 limited edition works produced by the artists and presented for the first time on the occasion of the show. On saturday 22 september, from 8 to 10 pm, during the Open Gallery Night, promoted by Unseen the artists will conduct a guided tour of the show and will be available to the public for a session of Q&A. 

 

On the one hand the work offers a view behind the scenes of TILO & TONI: interests, working methods, reference points, idols and tricks are revealed. On the other hand the duo remain loyal to their way of working: the focus is on a tension field between painting, photography, sculpture and a site-specific installation. By working with a variety of set pieces and discourse particles from the field of contemporary art, everyday culture, handicrafts and DIY aesthetics, TILO & TONI create an installation related to the setting of the Park Hotel, incorporating typical image-based rhetoric about hotel entrances and aesthetics.
