Encounter Contemporary is pleased to present Artist Rooms, an important new project which will launch on Thursday 22 June at Copeland Gallery in Peckham. The concept is deceptively simple. Five distinguished international contemporary artists. Five distinct rooms in which to create an engaging exhibit or installation.
Celebrating creative difference, Artist Rooms provides each participant an opportunity to innovate and assert their individuality as practitioners. The varied experiential quality of each room echoes the unique approach of each artist. From kinetic installations constructed with magnets, steel and oil through to poetic assemblages of discarded architectural fragments, these multidisciplinary works will make for a captivating and layered viewing experience.
The list of exhibitors is impressive. Each artist notably having gained significant critical acclaim early in their careers (see below for details). Following individual appearances at institutional venues worldwide, such as the Saatchi Gallery (UK) , Zaha Museum (South Korea), Kunsthal Aarhus (Denmark), Onassis Cultural Centre, (Athens), Castello di Monticello D’Alba (Italy), all five artists are now jointly turning their attention to occupying the 5000sqft South London exhibition space.
Artist Rooms will run until 30th June. This ambitious and intriguing project is certainly not one to miss.
