About the edition

For her solo exhibition Seasons and Sacraments at DCA, Jutta Koether demonstrated her distinct style inspired by two important series of paintings by the 17th century French artist Nicolas Poussin (1594 – 1665) via a series of large scale paintings.

The Double Session is an etching from two drawings on tracing paper by the artist, based on a photograph of a tableau vivant of Jacques Derrida recreating Poussin’s Massacre of the Innocents (c.1630). The number seven is embossed into the ceiling. The appearance of the four and the seven reiterate the idea of the Seasons and the Sacraments.
