Berlin-based artist Karolin Schwab has spend the last 4 weeks working at Trinity Buoy Wharf, London, as part of an artist residency by the University of East London. Now her studio doors will finally open and reveal everything that's happened within that period .

About

Four weeks ago Karolin Schwab arrived with nothing but a pencil and a book at the UEL project Space at Trinity Buoy Wharf, deciding to restrict herself to use only materials, that she would find within an 1000 m radius around her studio. So on the one hand the title describes the working process of the artist, constantly going around the area collecting materials, bringing things into the studio, assembling, taking apart, constructing and deconstructing again. What has just been an overlooked leftover suddenly turns into a painting…Making works is a very physical activity, a constant back and forth. 

But the title also refers to the ever ongoing changes we all find ourselves exposed to every day. The tide is rising, the tide is falling, new buildings growing higher, older ones are taken down. London and the Docklands area is a place, which is permanently under construction, reshaping it’s horizon within minutes. Often it feels like you are walking through a different city in the evening than the one you just saw in the morning. 

This show explores the nature of continuos shift and why it is important to understand yourself as a part that.

PRIVATE VIEW: 6th April, 5-8 pm, 
show continues April 7, 12 -6 pm & April 8, 12 -3 pm
