For their first collaboration ever, visual artist Margriet Craens and designer Lucas Maassen have produced a series of unusual photographs, as part of the exhibition ‘The Vincent Affair’. Inviting visitors to ‘‘see the world from a different perspective, like Vincent [van Gogh] did’’.

The exhibition includes works from eight Dutch artists and designers, each in its own way exploring the idiosyncrasies of how van Gogh used to work and what it means to attempt to see the world differently.

The ‘Chair Affair’ project, Craens and Maassen’s contribution to the exhibition, is a photographic series depicting pairs of chairs placed in ways that remind sexual positions and other intimate scenarios. A couple also in life, Craens and Maassen have described their project as sketchy and autobiographical, and the result of a confrontation between their two very different practices (design and art).
