Little Thoughts on Art: Gallery Furniture





In December I visited for the first time Wolfgang Tillmans’ gallery Between Bridges in the Keithstraße in Charlottenburg. A gallery attendant greeted us in the elegantly curated exhibition of Jochen Lempert. The hanging seemed to be such a part of the art work that I wondered if the artist had done it all by himself: “Did the artist do the curating?” “An artist doesn’t curate his own work,” the young hansom man responded cranky, “he installs it.” He seemed to be a little agitated by my question and when I left the gallery I thought it was the lack of a chair for him to sit on in the gallery space that made him feel edgy. A table would have been nice too. Galleries should give their employees a sitting possibility, even if it’s not the most aesthetic object in the room?
