Traversing painting and sculpture Timo Kube’s artwork deconstructs perception – a phenomenological concept that is spatially and temporally formed between spectator, object and image.
He uses natural and industrial materials such as clay, concrete, rocks, foam, fabrics, polyester and mirror in order to create objects, or spatial devices as he calls them, that offer a personal encounter withthe relationship between reality and perception.
In this exhibition titled /saɪt/ Kube draws attention not only to the objects brought in from his studio, but also to the uniquely shaped and situated space itself.
/saɪt/ is the phonetic transcription of all three homophonous words ‘site, ‘sight’ and ‘to cite’ and stands metaphorically for how the site unravels in sight of the beholder in relation to the viewer’s preconceptions and knowledge.
The pieces on show comprise subtle alterations of the exhibition space, raw materials from both the site and the artist’s studio as well as objects that are conventionally recognizable as works of art. These objects evoke a feeling of a careful but ephemeral placement subject to change.
Timo Kube is an artist based in London. He holds degrees from Chelsea College of Art and Design and the Academy of Fine Arts Münster (Germany).
He exhibits internationally and is currently represented at Galerie Gisela Clement in Bonn, Germany. To date notable venues and residences include Akademie der Künste, Berlin; Galerie Wilma Tolksdorf, Frankfurt am Main; Gallery Annarumma, Napels; Nunnery Gallery London and Galerie Kerstin Engholm, Vienna.
