Encounter Contemporary and Richeldis Fine Art are pleased to present Artist Rooms, 2019.
The concept is deceptively simple. Four distinguished international contemporary artists. Four distinct rooms in which to create an engaging exhibit or installation. The highly anticipated second edition of the project (launched 2017) will open on Thursday 13th June at Copeland Gallery in Peckham.
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 poetic assemblages of discarded architectural fragments, to multilayered photographic collages and a dynamic group of twenty 4-6ft sculptural ceramic vessels, the multidisciplinary works on display 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), Imago Mundi - Luciano Bennetton Collection (Italy), Kunsthal Aarhus (Denmark) and Trafo Kunsthall (Norway) all four artists are now jointly turning their attention to occupying the 5000sqft South London exhibition space. Artist Rooms will run until 25th June. This ambitious and intriguing project is certainly not one to miss.
