exhibition by Daniel Stubenvoll
Date: 11th April- 9th May 2015
Location: I: project space
Daniel Stubenvoll works with a striking minimalistic aesthetic in his solo show at I: project space. A car, two labels and a text force the viewer to create his own narration.
The objects shown in the exhibition I: Cowboy connect to certain American stereotypes and topoi. The Jeep and the cowboy are highly loaded images evoking stories of freedom, manhood, and the open country. Yet, the context and the background of the works stay in the shadows. Through the entire exhibition, the artist plays with the images, triggering clues just to challenge these at the same time and leaving them in a vague and mysterious state.
Willfully displacing objects soaked with America in the environment of I: project space, makes the viewer wonder: Why does the cowboy end up in the center of Beijing?
German artist Daniel Stubenvoll stayed for three months in the residency program of I: project space. The exhibition shows works created during his residency in Beijing. Next to this, he works on a video-project. During the exhibition his work-in-progress will be screened and discussed.

艺术家Daniel Subenvoll在I: Project Space带来了他在中国的个人展览——他崇尚的简约美学届时将会公之于众。一辆车，两个标签和一个文本将会让参展的每一位观众都能拥有自己对艺术品的解读。
在I: Project Space中，故意取代任何浸淫了“美国”的物体，可能会引发观众的思考：为什么牛仔会出现在北京的中心？
德国艺术家Daniel Stubenvoll在I: Project Space的艺术家驻地项目中在北京住了3个月的时间，这次个展是他在北京这三个月的艺术创作的总汇。除此以外，他的视频艺术计划也会在展览期间展出并和观众有讨论与互动。
