The Enormous Speed Of Change

The exhibition The Enormous Speed of Change takes place in a vacant and disused office building. While the artworks in and around Hoog Catharijne could be termed self-confident, here it’s doubt that prevails. Whereas Call of the Mall takes place largely in the beating shopping heart of Utrecht, The Enormous Speed of Change withdraws into a disused building, a silent symbol of vacancy, economic decline and recession. The Enormous Speed of Change is about this feeling of uprooting. In our rapidly changing world, everything seems to fluctuate. This means that we sometimes lack something to hold on to, that we don’t know where everything is heading, that we’re uncertain or even afraid. The tremendous speed of change results in uprooting, in both a positive and a negative sense.
