“There will be two of you” rearranges and adds to the 133 original panoramic images of the New Jersey Meadowlands commissioned by Okwui Enwezor for Documenta 11 in 2002. The black-and-white photographs were installed at Documenta as a mural grid, but are shown here in the original sequence in which they were taken during a year of winding walks. The NJ Meadowlands have long been at the centre of Ashkin’s visual imagination. In the accompanying text, ‘You will be two’, an enigmatic incident in the symbolic centre of the landscape promises an allegory of redemption that it cannot provide.
