Artist Jakob Lena Knebl is marking the end of her exhibition Oh… Jakob Lena Knebl and the mumok Collection with a magnificent party. Two days after her exhibition closes, she has planned a new one-day show on one of the emptied levels of the museum where her exhibition took place. This show entitled Oh…? Yes! will include DJ das_em and a bar, and instead of presenting works from the mumok collection there will be new interpretations by the artist. Static sculptures will be replaced by tableaux vivants. With dimmed lights, there will be a double of John de Andrea’s Woman on Bed (1974), while Antony Gormley’s reclining figure in his work Home (1984) will be looking for a new place to live. Other artworks will be presented as fakes, including an oversize furry variant of Veronika Bromová’s photograph Tongue (1996). Jakob Lena Knebl herself will be in the midst of it all, appearing as a mysterious figure from art history. After four hours the magic will end. On the next day work on refurbishing the gallery for the next project will continue as if it had never been interrupted.
