PENSON love the abnormal in life and in design. Anything that turns the idea of art on its head is a winner in our books and Katharina Grosse‘s new exhibition at the South London Gallery is a perfect example. This exhibit explores what it is to go beyond the traditional limits of a canvas. On such a large scale, the architecture of The South London Gallery becomes an unwitting contributor to the essence of the work. The heavily saturated colour is layered and layered; something that can only be experienced with the naked eye.
This is Katharina’s first institutional solo exhibition in London. Unlike normal exhibitions – there’s the distinct feeling you’re witnessing a one-of-a-kind piece – that being a site-specific work. Made with spray paint guns, there’s such a violent vivid expression of colour. Just don’t take your mother, it might drive her up the wall!
It runs until the 3rd December, open Tuesdays to Sundays and is free.
