Falckenberg Collection 27 April — 15 September 2024

In the sensual, aesthetically highly charged installations by Austrian duo Jakob Lena Knebl and Ashley Hans Scheirl, nothing is as it seems: across all floors of the collection building, they create walk-in, seductive worlds in a mix of sculpture, painting, design, staging, photography and film that captivate visitors.

In these "spaces of desire", Knebl and Scheirl question hierarchies of art and design as well as stereotypical gender identities: they take bodies apart, reassemble them and play with fetishism to create diverse works and beings that challenge the boundaries of good taste and conventional representations of identity. The duo draws on a wide range of references - from Mary Shelley and Ada Lovelace to Barbapapa, Hans Bellmer and Luigi Colani, from Hector Guimard to cyber aesthetics.

The exhibition will be complemented by works by students from Prof. Angela Bulloch's Time Based Media class at the HFBK and works by students from Jakob Lena Knebl's Transmedia Art class at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. In addition, works selected by the artists from the Falckenberg Collection will be on display.
