Jakob Lena Knebl

Jakob Lena Knebl (b.1970, Baden, Austria). Her practice intersects the language of fashion with art historical argumentation; recent works have intervened with the compositions of other artists, historic and present, as well as playing with objects of contemporary European culture and otherwise.

 

Jakob Lena Knebl graduated from University of Applied Arts in Fashion Studies and the Akademie of Fine Art in Textual Sculpting, 2006.

 

 

Recent solo exhibitions include: I am he as you are he as you are me. And we are all together, Belmacz, London (2019); Public installation at Rathaus, Vienna (2019);  Come together, right now.
