Since the beginning of his career, Wolfgang Tillmans has been interested in the way his work is displayed, and has used the exhibition as a means of expression in its own right.

The precise combination of photographs in different sizes, often hung unframed or stuck directly to the wall, allows him to illuminate a range of aesthetic and social relations. Once assembled, the images form an installation, an indissociable whole. Thus defined, the work can be recreated in other exhibitions. The groups Uno and Dos were created and exhibited for the first time in Madrid in 2005.
