In the exhibition Mahlzeit, Imi Knoebel shows a series of three tables, of which two consist of three elements and the other consists of two. As need be, individual elements can function as tables as well as the predefined, jigsaw-puzzle-esque whole.
The tables exhibit Imi Knoebel’s trademark shapes, colors and materials. Thickness and contours of the table tops are reminiscent of his wall-based objects. Knoebel applies the bold colors by hand, letting his characteristic painterly style show through. With this concept, Knoebel returns to one of his works from 1982, a table that he had produced in an edition of 25 for a solo show at the Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven at the time.
