In this video you can experience a virtual walk through F&R R&F’s solo exhibition ‘Breadcrumbs’. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was difficult to visit the venue in person. That’s why the artists wanted to make the exhibition accessible online through video.

Frank&Robbert Robbert&Frank present a retrospective of their past five years' work (2015-2020). Through theatrical dioramas, photo and video works, sculptures, blueprints, screen prints and clay tablets, the artists tell a story that links their everyday reality to philosophical and societal questions.

A major focus in the exhibition is the role of the artist in the public space and the creation of a personal mythology.

Their jumping-off point is a series of wooden suitcases that they developed some years back during their summer residency at Be-Part. Like the duo's artistic practice, these constructions straddle the boundary of craftsmanship and performance, sculpture and prop, public and private space, gadget and artwork.

They also present a series of recent editions, in each of which a new medium is explored: 3D prints, ceramic tablets and silk-screen prints. In these works the matter of representation is of central importance. For the artists, this is linked to their search for their own ultimate and authentic personal symbology.

By repeatedly exposing both themselves and their work to new contexts and environments, the artists attempt to share with spectators the poetic potential of their work.
