For the past ten years Swiss artist Raphael Hefti has been interfering with material processes, manipulating and transforming different substances to surprising effect. Coming from a technical background with a keen interest in how things are made and what things can do, Hefti sets-up pseudo scientific experiments which challenge industrial fabricators and ultimately divert objects from their original state.
Launching Rockets Never Gets Old will be Hefti's first solo show in the UK and in this new work he will approach his investigations from a specific tangent: discovering mistakes in industrial processes and pushing them to a limit where aesthetic transformations take place.
Café Curio: Artists' Book Club will feature Raphael Hefti in discussion with artist Roger Hiorns, on Wednesday 7 March.
