More about the exhibition

The solo exhibition by Jun Yang is dedicated to fundamental questions of artistic work: what significance do original works, unique pieces, series and reproductions have in art today? How is artistic practice defined when exchanged with others?

At the beginning of 2018, The Monograph Project by Jun Yang was published, a monograph totalling six volumes about the artist and his work, which – in a sort of paradoxical reversal – challenges monographic conventions and biography. For the format, cover and even spelling of the artist’s name changes from volume to volume. This evokes various artists, which is precisely what interests Yang: to break the narrative of authentic, brilliant creators – a narrative that has proven particularly well-suited to the branding of an artist and his/her work.

The solo exhibition at the Kunsthaus Graz links up to this. The exhibition, like the monograph, becomes itself the subject of artistic investigation. Besides the presentation of Yang’s works, the exhibition reflects authorship, constructions of identity and allocations of roles. In this, cooperation with others plays a special role. Alongside this, from February 15th, 2019, the Neue Galerie Graz addresses issues of the reproducibility of art, the significance of the original work, the one-off work and reproduction, in the exhibition titled Too Much Is Not Enough.  


With works from: 

Erwin Bauer, siren eun young jung, Lee Kit, Oliver Klimpel, Paul McCarthy/Mike Kelley, Michikazu Matsune, Yuuki Nishimura, Yuki Okumura, Koki Tanaka, Maja Vukoje, Jun Yang und Bruce Yonemoto.
