Johannes Jakobi

Winning Bid: 411

Smear (++1), 2018.
Preserved bread, acrylic paint.
7 × 13 × 1 cm.

Across Johannes Jakobi’s (*1991, Germany; Universität der Kunst) oeuvre –– which branches into virtual reality, installation, performance, and conceptual practices –– is a sense of play, experimentation, and surprising intimacy. In Smear (++1), Jakobi apes the application of paint to a canvas, comically instead slathered upon a slice of preserved bread. The viewer is encouraged to question both the limits of “painting” as they know it, and to appreciate the aesthetic value of an artwork in an unconventional form.
