Galerie Thomas Schulte / Berlin

"Root" by Willem de Rooij

Root is a new installation by Willem de Rooij, developed especially for Galerie Thomas Schulte. Touching on notions of identity and nationalism, it juxtaposes a seventeenth-century painting on loan from the Stadtmuseum Berlin with thirty-four unique photographic responses made by De Rooij.

For the Root exhibition running from 14 September to 28 October 2023 and the accompanying presentation of the painting, REIER supplied a wall display case of type W 51 with passive climate control.
