AboutIn his first solo exhibition in the UK, Henrik Pätzke will create an expansive installation in Project Ability's gallery and deliver a talk event about his practice on Saturday 5 April 1-2pm.
Henrik Pätzke has been working with Inuti, a Stockholm based organisation, since 1998 and is now a full-time member of Inuti 2, established in 2003 as a satellite studio to support artistically talented individuals with high-functioning autism, Asperger syndrome.
Pätzke is an artist most well-known for his tent installations and large fabric costume works that are designed and stitched together by the artist, often floated and suspended in the air displaying a closed quality and sculptural effect.
The exhibition will explore various ideas around constructed spaces and of autistic withdrawal behind emotional, defensive, architectural gestures with the tent and cloud acting as motifs for both transience and indications of human presence.
