IKOB - Museum of Contemporary Art presents Knorr's first solo exhibition in Belgium, an overview of his sculptural work of the last three years. The title of the exhibition, 'Flagship Store', refers not only to the temples of consumption of global brands such as Apple, Louis Vuitton or M&M'S, but also to the artist's own brand that he has crafted over the course of his career. The idea of not only producing his art but also selling and marketing it in his own 'shop' stems from the beginning of his career as an internationally sought-after artist. In light of the contemporary art market's intricate divisions of labour, this idea holds critical potential that comes to the fore in distinct ways through Knorr's recent works. Playful reflections on art history, undogmatic questioning of the art system, and mixtures of high and low cultural signifiers run as a thread through the exhibition, which presents a total of 47 new works by the artist.
