Welcome to a new online exhibition! As the world is still on lockdown, we’re all trying to figure out how to navigate within the so-called ‘new normal’. One of them is Vienna-based Christine König gallery, which is presenting the exhibition Me, Myself & I virtually until May 31st. The title gives it away, and as you can imagine, the group show presents a wide range of artworks and artists exploring the issue of the self, with some artworks being created during quarantine – like Juergen Teller’s self-portrait, for example.

“For as long as artists have been working in various fields, they also have been portraying themselves,” reads the exhibition text. “All works shown explore the subjective, emotional, physical, or political identities of their subjects. The artists included in this virtual exhibition use a wide range of techniques and media, often only giving subtle hints, sometimes revealing the mechanisms of self-exposure bluntly.” And so, we go from the age-old self-portraits, like those of Ai Weiwei, Maurizio Cattelan, Haruko Maeda, Jimmie Durham, Susanne Kortan Gimbel, Thomas Hartmann, Roman Urajnke or Per Dybvig, to more subtle ways of self-portraiture, like Natalia Stachon’s Visions and Revisions (My Working Space), which depicts the room she works in – an even more familiar space during quarantine. So, if you’re tired of taking selfies and using every face filter under the sun, check how (other) artists have been doing it since the dawn of times.
The exhibition Me, Myself & I is on view virtually on Christine König gallery’s website until May 31st.
