ARCHITECT OF THE IMPOSSIBLE
Escher in Het Paleis, The Hague, NL
November 14th 2018 – February 9th 2019
Two artists, two disciplines, but a shared fondness for enigmatic architecture. In winter 2019/2020, Escher in The Palace brought together the work of artist M.C. Escher (1898 – 1972) and the sculptures of contemporary artist and architect David Umemoto (1975) for the first time.
The exhibition has been possible with the generous collaboration of Modern Shapes Gallery in Antwerp.

Despite not being part of the exhibition, this piece is related because I created it afterwards as a tribute to Escher.
Escher in The Palace acquired the sculpture through a special acquisition fund in 2021. The sculpture has been on view in room 9 at the museum, between M.C. Escher’s prints.
