Installation view
9 June - 28 July 2012

Galerie Peter Kilchmann is pleased to start its liaison with Los Carpinteros with a presentation of new works in the rear project space. The collective Los Carpinteros is made up of Cuban artists Marco Antonio Castillo Valdés and Dagoberto Rodríguez Sánchez, who live and work in Havana and Madrid. A large single exhibition of Los Carpinteros at the gallery will follow in the summer of 2013. The presentation of the largeformat works on paper, such as M.A.E.S. Bulgaria – Lego, 2012 (See invitation card: Watercolor on paper, 113 x 199 cm) coincides with the artists’ participation in “Art and the City”. As part of the citywide exhibition in public space, Los Carpinteros will be showing large brick tower sculptures on the nearby Escher-Wyss-Platz.
The single exhibition “Silence your eyes” is on view at the Kunstmuseum Thun, Switzerland, until July and will travel on to Kunstverein Hannover, Germany in December 2012. A catalog will be published on the occasion, and is available through the gallery along with further publications.
