About

An intriguing cubistic construction created in 1968 by Jan Slothouber and William Graatsma. The lithograph measures 70 x 70 cm. After an architectural training Jan Slothouber (1918 - 2007) and William Graatsma (1925) worked as architects / designers from 1955 for the Dutch State Mines (DSM). Here they designed the packing, product applications, advertisements and exhibitions and gave the company a recognizable face. Within the information service of DSM the two had an unique position: They could build their own world and developed the principle of cubic constructions. The cubic as a main point brought restriction but also clarity in the multiplicity of possibilities according to Slothouber and Graatsma. The use of several materials adds each time new aspects to the functioning of the cubic constructions. Almost accidentally Slothouber and Graatsma entered the world of the visual arts. The Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam asked them to make the exhibition with the title Vier kanten: maat, vorm, kleur, letter (Four Sides: size, shape, color, letter). After that they founded the Centre for Cubic Constructions (CCC). Several fascinating presentations followed, among that in the Art & Project gallery in 1968 and the Dutch presentation at The Venice Biennial in 1970.
