MISHA KAHN:
UNDER THE WOBBLE MOON

April 28, 2022 - August 21, 2022

Museum Villa Stuck, Munich, Germany

It must be reconciled that we enter a new period on earth. The physical coincides with the metaverse here, and we live partially in both worlds. Equally viable is the longing to stay inside, and to be far away at once. Human driven alterations to our climate mean frequent bouts of extreme uncertainty about our surroundings. We are adrift. The idea that we build stable houses, with stable objects on stable ground with stable narratives feels irrelevant and irresponsible amidst our self-determined fate of undermining all of these things.

Objects too must enter this new period on earth. We must build quickly, and plan for dissipation. To work with the detritus left in the wake of our chaos. To appreciate the energy and mysticism of earthly material. To apparate into a virtual realm when needed. And to capture these meandering narratives. Through various rooms and vignettes, this exhibition will explore each of these attitudes in the form of objects for a place that exists outside of statis—a space where the wobble moon pulls the water in our body from side to side, as is it does the fluidity of ideas, emotions and energy that float beyond the reality that we could understand.

“Under the Wobble Moon. Objects from the Capricious Age” is the most comprehensive exhibition to date of works by Misha Kahn, born in 1989 in Duluth, Minnesota (USA), and the first major presentation of his objects in Europe.

Curated by Kellie Riggs, the exhibition shows works from the past seven years, but almost half are new works that were created especially for the VILLA STUCK museum. The exhibition is shown in the historical rooms on the ground floor and in the old studio and the former private rooms on the upper floor. The presentation will be expanded by a new, inflatable sculpture on the terrace in front of the old studio and an installation in the artists’ garden, in the center of which a robot will create paintings for the duration of the exhibition.
