Kunstraum

Kunstraum is a London based project space with a focus on solo exhibitions of artists based outside of the UK in London’s neighbouring European cities. Open since September 2012, Kunstraum, literally meaning ‘art room’ in German, seeks to form new relationships with the interconnected art scenes of Europe.

For his exhibition at Kunstraum, Peter Wächtler presents Tim and Racky (2011); a film in three acts, set in the fraternity house of Rotterdam’s oldest and largest student association, R.S.V. Sanctus Laurentius. The acting on display is wooden and awkward (a partial result of not being trained actors) and further exaggerated through the challenge of delivering the script in a language other than their own.

Wächtler’s films, texts and readings consistently offer elaborate constructions that offer us a well deserved detour from the banality of everyday existence into the fantastical filmic and literary genres of thrillers, B-movie horror, tragicomedy and dark romantic drama. For Wächtler, it would seem, his use of English as a native German speaker is approached as a vehicle to be manipula... [ Read all ]

Press Releases

Andrew Lacon's (b. 1985 in Dudley, UK) work examines the material relationships of images to objects, pointing at the picture as a physical form. In his practice Lacon makes visible the material layers that constitute the image. Lacon's work Studio Sculpture (2014) functions as photo made sculptural, its form borrowed from studio photography – a draped backdrop composed within a framing device – but physically manifest in steel and velvet. In addition Lacon will make an intervention into the gallery lighting – filters in primary colours over the three skylights. A single framed photocopy from a reproduced detail of fabric folds on a Berlini statue will be partlially lit by a pool of this filtered light. Just as Studio Sculpture is developed out of research into the use of drapery in photographs of sculpture, the lighting intervention reflects on the historic use of reflected colour to give marble statues a lifelike appearance.


Eva Fàbregas' (b. 1988 in Barcelona, Spain) work is centered around mobility of everyday life within modernity. For the exhibition at Kunstraum she will use found material in the form of Scandinav... [ Read all ]
