Yannick Vu & Ben Jakober Works 1982 - 2012

October 13, 2012 - January 6, 2013

The exhibition Flash Back: Yannick Vu & Ben Jakober Works 1982 – 2012, presented simultaneously with the Golden Children, 16th-19th Century European Portraits exhibition, allowed insight into different aspects of the couple, not only as artists but also as collectors, highlighting 30 years of creativity.

The exhibition, Flash Back presented individual early works of Yannick Vu and Ben Jakober, together with their collaborative works beginning from 1993. As Flash Back allowed us to contemplate and understand the art of Vu and Jakober individually, it also enabled us to recognize within the collaborative works a third artist, and appreciate a process engendered by an interaction of different sensitivities in the works created.
