With a text by Jurriaan Benschop

“For those who thought that modern art was over, this show is a challenge [THEN AND NOW, Galerie Max Hetzler, Berlin, 2014]. It offers a lineage that connects works by five artists in multiple ways. Their origins are British, and some of them share the landscape and the eras that surrounded and formed them as artists. They also share an interest in abstraction and modern 'essentials'. What we can see in this show is modern art still being effective. There is belief in the projects presented and in their potential to be meaningful. The show presents continuity, in methods and appearances, between 20th-century and 21st-century art pieces. Even with Warren's anachronistic little pom-pom and de Waal's reflections on the unique art object, this continuity can be felt. In fact, through questioning habits and styles, these artists only confirm the importance that 'then' has for 'now'.”
