Fri, December 10 — Fri, December 17 2004 ///
quitch, Untere Donaulände 10, Linz ///
qujOchÖ places its text work in the display window of the quitch as an intervention: NA UND (SO WHAT). This inconspicuous linking word becomes a picture, a conveyor of significance, a potential conversation opener.
The museum is not much. Not a building AND not a collection AND not an exhibition AND not a scientific laboratory AND not a workshop AND not a workplace AND not a meeting point AND. The positioning of qujOchÖ’s work points out the essential destruction of the varied functions of the contemporary museum. At the same time it appears to be a curious question to the visitors, as a welcome or farewell: “SO WHAT? What are you expecting?” or “SO WHAT? How was it?” or “SO WHAT? What the hell I am doing here?”
qujOchÖ, born 2001 in Linz, Austria, lives in Linz and is not an assistant at the Institute of Fine Arts and Cultural Studies at the Art University Linz.
