Michael Beutler

Pump House

16 Jul 2016 - 25 Sep 2016

Working with a team of local collaborators, Beutler will turn two of our galleries into a workshop. Channelling the spirit of DIY invention, and the disappearing tradition of co-operative labour, Beutler and his team will completely transform the galleries, creating a social response to our architecture. Working on site they will make a monumental installation from paper and cardboard, reshaping the materials into building blocks with the help of giant handmade tools. This presentation is the second chapter of an exhibition that started life at Spike Island in Bristol, and will recycle all of the original materials. Both galleries were designed by the acclaimed Caruso St John Architects.

 

Michael Beutler’s exhibition is co-produced by Spike Island, Bristol and Nottingham Contemporary.
