Elsa Tomkowiak: Work in Progress / Mary Sue: Thinking About the Show at TMH. Courtesy of the artists

In celebration os Amsterdam Art Weekene 2017, The Merchant House has asked Elsa Tomkowiak and Mary Sue to interpret the gallery's building, rich with Golden Age symbolism, as a contemporary public sphere. using both spoofing techniques and serious art, they - Tomkowiak in painting and Mary Sue in video, sculpture, and photography - join forces to give the interior topography a provoking and provocative facelift. In so doing, the artists also address individually, and emphatically with respect to their art, the underlying theme of TMH's Making Things Happen: Young Artists Dialogue cycle: How does a young artist inscribe herself in the history of an art medium? In the case of Mary Sue and Tomkowiak, the question refers to performance and a performative gesture in art making.
