During the opening of Tique on the 29th of January Polly’s Picture Show presents the exhibition and publication ‘Out of Shape’.
Since its founding in 2011, Polly’s Picture Show (NL) has realized several projects within the the field of contemporary photography, such as exhibitions, installations and publications. Even though photography is Polly’s Picture Show’s starting point, this doesn’t necessarily mean that all projects result in solely pictures. It’s Polly’s Picture Show’s aim to research the boundaries of photographic medium.
Artist(s) Lotte Reimann, Ruth van Beek, Fleur van Dodewaard, Hanne Lillee, Samara Scott, Suzanne Posthumus, Anna de Jong, Isabelle Wenzel, Anne Huijnen

The exhibition ‘Out of Shape’ brings together the work of 8 artists who all draw attention to the importance of shape and form. The subject manifests itself in many different ways: there are solid triangles and squares, morphing outlines and silhouettes, peculiar figures and forms. The forms we desire, or that are desired of us. Unruly bended, turned, covered and exposed. In shape or out of shape, this project celebrates it all.
During the exhibition ‘Out of Shape’ the publication by the same name will be launched. This publication was realized in the Frans Masereel Centrum in Kasterlee (Belgium). During a 5 week residency Polly’s Picture Show worked towards developing a publication that would combine work by 8 artists in a way that values the particularity and individuality of each work. The publication had to be more than a catalogue for a show, it had to be an art piece in itself, and that’s how it found it’s final form of a show in the shape of a box. Each artist contributed to the project by submitting one image of a work. Polly’s Picture Show then looked for the fitting print technique, color, size and paper to reproduce this work in an edition of 50. Like Duchamp’s Boîte-en-valise all works have their own existence in a box/publication which together forms the concept of a show where the works enter into a dialogue.
