Joachim Koester: The Other Side of the Sky

Discover Koester’s works from the past 10 years, many of which have never been shown in the UK before. Embark on a psychological journey into Department of Abandoned Futures; watch dancers quiver as Koester reinterprets the cultural myth of Tarantism, the dancing cure practised by victims of tarantula bites to release venom from their bodies; delve into the artist’s obsessive documentation of ‘the alien’ in his Praying Mantis film and accompanying photographs.

“Just strolling through the spaces might be enough for a visitor to get a sense of what is going on. I call this ‘inhaling the show’ – perceiving it through the body. There is also another, conceptual landscape to be discovered...”
