Thijs groot Wassink

‘On collaboration, supposedly dumb questions and how these have been applied in the production of artist books’

Why collaborate at all?… One big reason is to restrict one’s own freedom… There’s a joy and relief in being limited, restrained. For starters, to let someone else make half the decisions, or some big part of them, absolves one of the need to explore endless possibilities. The result is fewer agonizing decisions … and sometimes, faster results. (David Byrne: Journal 03.15.10)
WassinkLundgren is a meeting of two creatively mischievous minds: Thijs groot Wassink and Ruben Lundgren. As their conjoined name suggests, the pair work as a single, two-headed creative entity, looking at the world around them through the medium of photography, while simultaneously playing around with ideas of creativity and collaboration through that same medium. Each of their projects, to differing degrees, takes them on a tightrope walk of discovery where chance, accident and uncertainty often seem as important as the pursuit of a single governing idea”. Sean O’Hagan 2013
