Romer Young Gallery is pleased to announce its third solo exhibition with Berlin artist Gwenaël Rattke, opening FRIDAY September 14th, 18:00 – 21:00. In this exhibition Rattke presents a series of new silkscreens and paper-based collages created from his collection of visual material– long culled from old publications, papers and books, old magazines, found photos and record covers.
Although drawing from a collection of references, preoccupations, thoughts and art, the great inspiration for this exhibition began on a recent trip to Lebanon where the artist visited the Jeita Grotto outside of Beirut. Situated only a few miles outside of the bustling capital, the caves run 4 miles deep into the mountain and contain some of the world’s oldest and biggest stalactites.
