The Particular Unity of Same and Other (An Amplitude, The Hague) corresponds with the eponymous exhibition at Rosa Brux that took place a month after the exhibition openend in The Hague. Both shows start from a recent travel that Hendrikse made to Indonesia and reflects upon the image that proceeds the stranger and that remains after he or she has left. The position of the stranger is a crucial one, since it allows a critical distance and uninhibited nearness at the same time.

The works on show in The Hague and Brussels are a collection of narrative fragments which refer to the period of European colonialims and in particular the Dutch/Indonesian history.  Using the works that he made for The Hague as a mould for the exhibition in Brussels, Hendrikse created a resonance between both places. The works on show construct their own doubles, echoes, misunderstandings and interpretations.
