Waterproof Test and Wow, two works from German artist Christian Jankowski, will be presented by Lisson Gallery at the abc. Waterproof Test is comprised of a series of photographs, which document bottles tested in the East River, which flows through New York to the Atlantic Ocean. The bottles, however, never reach the open water of the ocean, as they are only placed in the river briefly to test their water resistance.
Wow, a segment of Jankowski’s series Visitors, is a neon installation based on entries in visitors’ books that are often places in galleries during exhibitions. The artist has collected different comments on his work left by visitors and transformed those he liked most into neon signs.
