The Japanese word Dokodenodoor ( “anywhere door”) defines a magic door which can lead anywhere. It is the door which allows you to travel to the destination of your desire. It is the key to the individual artistic positions, flexible in both form and content, connecting the works beyond this exhibition. The idea of a word, a door which an individual can pass through to enter any given place, is reminiscent of both the nature of art and the tradition of the secret passageway; opening doors, pursuing new horizons, worlds, and ideas, the secret door hidden behind pictures, furniture, and wall tapestries, leading the initiated into a hidden room, a hallway or an exit. We are reminded of the Dutch tradition of the “idea” as the window to the world, triggered by the evolution of landscape painting as an independent genre in fine arts. Ultimately, Dokodemodo awakens the deep-rooted human longing for the places where loved ones have gone, have fled to or where they were left behind.
