Untitled by Albert Oehlen

“Untitled (Bedroom), 2005” is a rare installation work by the renowned German artist – Albert Oehlen, which reproduces the artist’s bedroom in Cologne’s residence—yellow wallpaper, carpets, bed and a potted plant. The bedroom floor was filled with personal items, such as a record player and a hi-fi system with vinyl records occupying the corner, set aside by a set of bright orange heaters and a small drip coffee maker. On the bed, even the artist was present; a self-portrait half-hidden under the quilt, a phantom hand holding a paintbrush, protruding from the quilt, as if painting. The installation shifts the focus from the painting composition to the artist-related space, giving the viewer a glimpse into the artist’s life.
