Prada presents “What Was I?”, a new exhibition project conceived by artist Goshka Macuga, with the support of Fondazione Prada. On view from 23 March to 2 June 2019, it will take place in the premises of Prada Rong Zhai, a 1918 historical residence in Shanghai restored by Prada and reopened in October 2017.
Goshka Macuga is part of the group exhibition "Entangle / Physics and the Artistic Imagination" at the Bildmuseet in Umeå. The exhibition shows different contemporary positions of artists and designers, who are dealing with science. Macuga’s installation “International Institute of Intellectual Co-operation” 2015/2016, refers to the same named institute, which was found in 1920's. The Idea was to facilitate the international exchange of intellectuals. Macuga expanded this model by bringing together portraits of intellecutals who hypothetically discuss problematic matters of our time.
Sensual surfaces seduce the eye, inviting the viewer to simply enjoy. Karin Kneffel paints canvasses that exert a magical attraction. Her realist painting draws the viewer into sophisticated visual worlds in which her skillful arrangement of formal ornaments and the interplay of colors blend into an optical fireworks display. However, the works retain a secretive aloofness, as if the perfect, inviting, yet sealed-off surface is deliberately preventing a closer look.
