CCS Bard Galleries

This multimedia exhibition takes its title and cue from a creature described in a short story by Franz Kafka and represented in a picture by Jeff Wall. Kafka describes the Odradek as an exceptionally mobile creature that refuses to be caught; a fugitive form with no apparent purpose that lives in familiar domestic spaces and does no obvious harm to anyone. It has a voice and speaks politely, without ever giving more than opaque answers to transparent questions. The exhibition includes works by Donald Judd, Art & Language, Jeff Wall and Carsten Nicolai as well as new and existing works by the co-curators. Curator: Thomas Mulcaire in collaboration with Kendell Geers, Liam Gillick, and Paul Gregory.
