In 2015 the Stedelijk bought the spatial artwork +#14.11 by Saskia Noor van Imhoff (1982). For the inaugural presentation of this work at the Stedelijk, the artist is making an installation that enters into a conversation with the museum collection and with the architecture of the gallery spaces.

In her work, Van Imhoff combines artworks from the depot, replicas, and everyday objects, juxtaposing them without any kind of hierarchy. She integrates conservation, research, and classification methods into her installation. This strategy reveals one of the central themes of her work: a critique of the tenuous divide between original and copy.

How does removing a work from its original context and using it as material for a new work affect the meaning and value of the art object?
