Item description for Parkett No. 81: Christian Jankowski, Cosima von Bonin, Ai Weiwei (Parkett) by Bice Curiger...
Parkett 81 features Christian Jankowski, Cosima von Bonin and Ai Weiwei. Texts on German-born Jankowski are by Cay Sophie Rabinowitz, Jorg Heiser and Harald Falckenberg--who sees the artist as a sort of chameleon: a blend of "actor, performer, magician, seducer, thief, knave, and charlatan." Cologne-based cult figure Cosima von Bonin, "expresses control, domination, subordination, and freindship" in her large-scale stuffed animal sculptures and colorful wall-hung fabric collages, according to Bennett Simpson, who writes along with Dirk von Lowtzow and Diedrich Diederichsen. Ai Weiwei--celebrated internationally for his mutant table and bicycle sculptures and collaborative urban architectural projects--is discussed in this issue by Philip Tinari, Jaques Herzog and Charles Merewether. Other contributions by Thomas Eaton, Jan Verwoert, Christian Scheidemann, Jeremy Sigler, Tim Griffin, Jennifer Higgie, Heimo Zobernig, Nico Baumbach, Adam Sczymczyk and Ulla von Brandenburg.
