Conversation: Indian Summer 2018: Peter Wächtler

16 October at De Ateliers
Peter Wächtler

Peter Wächtler (b.1979, Hannover, Germany), lives in Brussels. The drawings, sculptures and films of Peter Wächtler reflect the artist’s fascination with bestsellers, page-turners, tearjerkers and blockbusters.

Though composed of familiar elements, his work demonstrates the limitation of communication, often with a comic result. His tales result from ongoing attempts to overcome the gap between intention and affect. Wächtler recently had solo exhibitions at the Renaissance Society (Chicago, 2016), Chisenhale Gallery (London, 2016), KIOSK (Ghent, 2016) and Westfälischer Kunstverein (Münster, 2014). He participated in the Liverpool Bienial (2014) and Lyon Bienial (2013) and published his collected writings with Sternberg Press in 2013. The artist is represented by dépendance (Brussels) and Reena Spaulings Fine Art (New York).
