Witte de With Centre for Contemporary Art presents One Remove: the first solo exhibition of Lucy Skaer in the Netherlands. One Remove is presented in the context of Para | Fictions which shows five solo exhibitions with new work of upcoming international talent. They are all asked to create new work, which expresses an interaction between the visual arts and literature. One Remove by Lucy Skaer departs from The Waves by Virginia Woolf. In taking the sensibility of Woolf’s novel, Skaer uses the carte blanche afforded by fiction to make a room that is neither functional nor narrative, but it is specifically crafted.
