It is absolutely not an overstatement to say that I am thrilled to announce that I will have a solo exhibition at PEER London at the start of next year.
Here’s the announcement from PEER’s website:
PEER presents an exhibition of ambitious new works by Vlatka Horvat. Having exhibited extensively across Europe, USA and further afield, this will be her first solo exhibition in London, where she has lived for more than a decade. Horvat’s practice spans sculpture, installation, video and photography, as well as performance, publications and public interventions. Her work often involves gestures of reconfiguring space and the spatial and inherent social relations at play – exploring the precarious relationship between bodies, objects, materials, the built environment, and landscape.
The central element of her exhibition at PEER will be an epic series of 365 A4 works on paper – one produced for every day of 2021. Each is based on a photograph the artist has taken on her daily walk, which she then playfully and radically reimagines using drawing and collage. Titled To See Stars over Mountains, the work will densely occupy the whole of the second gallery space at PEER. The works mirror, amplify, extend, repeat, and morph aspects of the landscape – celebrating the everyday as well as transforming it radically, bringing new eyes and possibilities to urban space.
To See Stars over Mountains will also be presented as an artist book documenting the entire series. The 376-page book, published in collaboration with PEER and Unstable Object, will launch at the opening of the exhibition and will be available to purchase.
Alongside the collages, Horvat will show a new sculptural installation that speaks directly to the street via PEER’s large storefront windows, and a new video produced in 2021.
So book your calendars!
