The exhibition “Bas Princen. Image and Architecture” at Vitra Design Museum Gallery provides an insight into Princen’s ongoing examination of the relationship between architecture and image.
For this exhibition, Bas Princen has employed large-scale photographs and his specially developed technique of printing on Japanese rice paper to create more than the mere representation of a building. Instead, the image is intended to be perceived as an actual material object in itself. In doing so, Princen encourages the viewer to form a new relationship with both, the architecture and its image.
