SEASONAL GREETINGS by Jakob Lena Knebl & Ashley Hans Scheirl
225 x 303mm, 192 pages, Colour printing, Perfect bound, Softcover, 2021
The artist duo Jakob Lena Knebl and Ashley Hans Scheirl are a couple both privately and artistically, feminist and queer. In Seasonal Greetings, they present themselves in differing poses, sometimes colourful and frivolous, sometimes distinguished and thoughtful, and then again lascivious and provocative - never without style or without humour, in a manner comparable to the British artist duo Gilbert & George. The camera is a co-protagonist, the changing of roles and genres is more than an attitude, it is the work itself. Serious reflection, scenes, and the obscene collide unchecked.
