For his commission at Bloomberg SPACE, German based artist, Gereon Krebber will mark a move away from objectness towards a state of total transience. Krebber who trained in London will show a single, individual construction made out of charred and burnt timber that will inhabit the Front Space of the gallery. Standing at almost four metres high, it will be possible to see through and walk around the cleverly connected pieces which will seem more like a forest of posts than a hut.
Carrying some of the preoccupation we have with the future, the piece will carry the transitional sense of a building site, where all is in a state of flux. The structure will be more of a dystopian playground, where something still tied to the actuality of material has been delayed and somehow caught at a stage before fruition. In ruins already, but with no history, narration, or narrator, Krebber’s piece will denote the sense that something, perhaps a confrontation has already taken place, that this [is] may also be somewhere where something has already happened.
