Michael Riedel: Jacques comité [Giacometti] / Dual air [Dürer]
Michael Riedel was invited by The Absolut Company to create an installation at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris that could be used for various events and thus provide seating, a bar, and a stage. Riedel's idea was a three-part exhibition with an exhibition period of two years. Jacques comité [Giacometti] opened the first part of this trilogy on July 11, 2013, followed by Dual air [Dürer] on April 24, 2014, and EFFJ KNOOS [JEFF KOONS] on February 12, 2015. This catalog is published as part of the exhibition EFFJ KNOOS [JEFF KOONS], which is not reproduced in the catalog itself, but will be included in a forthcoming publication.

Since the late 1990s, Michael Riedel has advanced his own model of a self-sustaining artistic production, continuously using reproductions as a means to “reintroduce the system of art into the art system.” His practice has incorporated a wide range of media and included large-scale works on canvas, fabric works, film and video, audio recordings, installations, and events. A central focus is the production and design of books, catalogues, brochures, posters, and invitation cards; these works often accompany and document his exhibitions.
