Sturtevant & Tina Braegger: Curiosity Killed the Cat Curated by Udo Kittelmann

Private opening 28 November 2021
De 11 Lijnen, Oudenburg, Belgium

In 1979 the American musician, Iggy Pop, released his album New Values including the song Curiosity in which the singer famously used the line ‘Curiosity Killed the Cat’. Based on the idiom that is usually a warning to either not ask any more questions, or to stop trying new things, it is often used to discourage someone from doing something. Curiosity and repetition may appear as a connection between Sturtevant (1924–2014) and Tina Braegger (b. 1985): two artists from different generations and backgrounds. This thoughtfully put together presentation explores the ideas of originality and repetition as well as transformation and representation in our image culture. This exhibition is intended to be seen more as a coupling than as a marriage.
