AboutPump House Gallery has invited German artist Christian Jankowski to realise an ambitious solo project that will take place in spring 2010. With the artist's aim to create âThe Perfect Gallery' this will mark a significant development in both Jankowski's practice and the programming aspirations of Pump House Gallery.
For âThe Perfect Gallery' Jankowski has contracted an interior designer and team of builders to undertake real renovations to the gallery and in conjunction will produce a video that follows the format of an interior-design makeover programme presented by Gordon Whistance. The episode's aim will be to create âthe perfect gallery' from the Pump House Gallery's idiosyncratic fusion of 19th-century architecture and 1980s interior styling.
As dictated by the reality TV genre, the narrative of the transformation will include dramatic and emotional episodes, discussions on architectural and aesthetic decisions and matters of taste, and inspiration visits to other galleries in London in the quest for âThe Perfect Gallery'.
