  • Femke asked

    Beste heer/mevrouw, Kunt u mij vertellen in welke tijdsperiode "Double Steel Cage Piece" van Bruce Nauman in uw collectie te vinden was? Kunt u mij toevallig ook informatie verschaffen over de verschillende plaatsen (en hun periodes) waar dit werk heeft gestaan? Dus de 'provenance' van het werk?
    Alvast bedankt! Met vriendelijke groet, Femke Pot - student Kunstgeschiedenis aan de Rijksuniversiteit Groningen

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Dag Femke, Het werk is in 1980 aangekocht door het museum. De verkoper was de galerie Sperone Westwater Fischer. Het is door het museum veelvuldig uitgeleend aan andere instellingen, maar daar heb ik zo 1,2,3 geen compleet overzicht van. Hartelijke groeten, Rianne

More information

This sculpture consists of two cages, one contained inside the other. The space between them forms a narrow corridor. The relationship between space and the human body plays an important role in this work. The piece is experienced completely different from outside and from within. Entering the work is a claustrophobic experience that, in a certain sense, leads to nothing: the inner cage is sealed and inaccessible.
