Lesson 43: Queue Performance
Kofmehl laments the fading of didacticism within Contemporary Art. Lesson 43: Queue incorporates multiple elements of Kofmehl's practice including performance, sculpture, installation and video. The opening night performance features Kofmehl, his father and two brothers-in-law in an instructional workshop, which explores Fair-Trade entrepreneurship, angling, and illiteracy prevention. Sculptures cast from bronze and steel, wood and marble “teaching aids” found throughout the transformed gallery space function as props for the dissemination of a triumphant message of hope, redemption and sacrifice.
