Exhibition dates: 02.08.2014 - 12.09.2014
Opening: 01.08.2014, 6 - 8 pm


We are happy to announce Sebastian Hammwöhner’s third showing with the gallery and first solo exhibition with us. Meanwhile the Sky regroups a new body of work composed of 12 carpet drawings based on contemporary Moroccan Boucherrouite rugs.

Hammwöhner scans the image of these rugs, then alters them in the computer, deconstructing, rearranging, and painting them digitally. The newly restructured virtual “carpet” then becomes the template pattern for the drawings, pastel images suspended within a black monochromatic field. Original artifact, virtual representation, appropriation, and copy are intertwined and mirrored into exotic trompe l’oeil.

An accompanying catalogue has been published on the occasion of this exhibition.
