“A Re-create exhibition takes the original works of art and places them in spatial and temporal contexts—I call this a process of setting them in motion and history. Setting the art in this dynamic equilibrium gives us the opportunity to reconsider and reimagine these masterpieces. Re-create is intended to encourage Vermeer fans all over the world to reawaken their love for his paintings. It aims to bring depth and breadth to our understanding and appreciation of Vermeer. Re-create is not a process of simple replication or imitation of the original. Instead, it works to complement the original, to supplement our understanding of it. Re-create is my attempt to devise a new way for people all over the world to enjoy great art”.
