The day I killed Elvis (2020)
The corporate collection of the EVN AG was established in 1995. It is a collection of international, contemporary art and offers the opportunity to communicate critical and current positions. The art works are selected by a team of experts commissioned by the company (Brigitte Huck, Heike Maier-Rieper, Hans-Ulrich Obrist, Markus Schinwald, Thomas D. Trummer) and are seen as an intellectual and material investment. International thinking, quality awareness and innovation link the collection to the company’s mission statement. The collection is an integral part of the corporate culture and it shapes the perception of the EVN employees as well as of their clients. The “Wallpaper” project has been realised since 2018. Wallpapers designed by artists and created especially for the EVN collection will be temporarily hung. In combination with works from the collection, an interplay of workplace, architecture and contemporary art can be experienced. In the first half of 2021, for the first time Wallpaper #4 will feature works and wallpapers by Sasha Auerbakh, Bar du Bois, Gottfried Bechtold, Chto Delat, Angus Fairhurst, Dr Galentin Gatev, Marcus Geiger, Suboth Gupta, Little Warsaw, Alois Mosbacher, Elaine Reichek, Rosa Rendl, Gerwald Rockenschaub, Marianna Simnett, Jasper Spicero & Bunny Rogers, Elisabeth B. Tambwe and Maja Vukoje.
