Carsten Nicolai

Solo Show in London
Posted by Gestalten—02/2013

London-based gallery Ibid Projects is hosting a solo exhibition by the German multi-media artist. The private view is tonight, February 27th, 6:30-8:30 PM. The exhibit is titled “Observatory” and continues until April 19th, 2013.

Nicolai’s soon-to-be released next book syn chron documents the artist and musician’s eponymous project, a mobile space that simultaneously serves as a body for transmitting acoustics, a resonant room, and projection surface. Published by Gestalten, the publication exists in both analog form as a book and in digital form on an included DVD. More of Nicolai’s work is featured in cyclo. id, Grid Index, and Moiré Index.
