Description

In 2010 Johannes Wohnseifer staged a solo exhibition of his work in a vacant 2 story apartment somewhere in Germany. The location and date were never revealed and entry was limited to a handful of visitors.

This book documents that exhibition.

The venue – a decaying, high-end society pad, complete with rich, oak-paneled walls and spacious bedrooms – makes an interesting counterpoint to the numerous sculptures and paintings carefully arrange throughout its interior. In fact the exhibition itself functioned as an alternative mini-retrospective of sorts, featuring works from every period of Wohnseifer’s career. Lusciously illustrated with installation shots by Alwin Lay and assorted pop-culture references this book seeks to pull-back the curtain on this never-before-seen exhibition.

Johannes Wohnseifer lives and works in Cologne and Erftstadt. He is rerpresented by Johann König Gallery in Berlin, Casey Kaplan Gallery in New York, Praz-Delavallade in Paris, Galerie Gisela Capitain in Cologne, Galleri K in Oslo and Almine Rech in Brussels.
