Has Hans Ulrich Obrist, the co-director of London’s Serpentine Galleries, been missing that dirty dancing android that he brought to the attention of the Art Basel crowds as part of the “14 Rooms” exhibition last year? The word on the street is that the Serpentine is in discussion with the creator of (Female Figure) 2014, the young American artist Jordan Wolfson, about a possible exhibition (though a spokeswoman says that it is too soon to provide any details). The work—which was also the centrepiece of the artist’s debut solo show at David Zwirner in New York last year—would surely have to travel to London, the question is from where? All three editions of the limbering lady have sold, one to the collectors Eli and Edythe Broad, and another to Peter Brant (the third owner is keeping private). Either way, we think she deserves a first-class seat.
