A TALE OF TWO CITIES

A TALE OF TWO CITIES

VENDEL & DE WOLF

THE NETHERLANDS

The title of the work A Tale of Two Cities (2015) by Vendel & De Wolf is derived from the famous novel by Charles Dickens from 1859. The artists have given their work this name because of the similarities between the work and the book. Both are full of symbols about decline and resurrection. Two cities, which may either be merging or colliding, made of Plexiglas and illuminated by thousands of LED lamps. These lamps are controlled by the public.

About Vendel & De Wolf

The Dutch artists Paul Vendel and Sandra de Wolf have been inseparable since they met during their studies in audiovisual art and photography at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. They have been working together as Vendel & De Wolf for 25 years. They create mainly site-specific work, drawing on the physical, social, cultural and historical contexts in which the work is exhibited. They refer to their work as ‘growing structures’ that reveal the beauty of existing issues.
