Yaël Kempf. Play It For What
MUR BRUT 23
Opening: 8 June 2022, 6–8 p.m.
For MUR BRUT 23, Yaël Kempf will design a wall in the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf parking garage.
In Kempf’s works, the viewers are always conceived as participants, which results in an interaction between the artistic scenarios and the audience.
At the opening of the project Play It For What, the artist invites viewers to witness a collective event. An extraordinary match will be shown, during which the upper area of the parking garage will be closed to cars for two hours. Accompanied by an additional element, a performative act, the experience of the evening will remain a unique occurrence.

Stewart, what in particular do you want to
