The Kunstverein in Hamburg presents the first solo exhibition of the British artist Prem Sahib (b. 1982, London, UK, lives and works in London) in Germany. Sahib predominantly works with sculpture and draws on the aesthetics of public and personal spaces. Industrial materials and simplified geometrical shapes are reminiscent of Minimal Art. However in contrast to Minimalism, Sahib is not only focused on objectivity, and logic; his sculptures are also charged with personal experiences, symbolism, emotions, and subjectivity. Their clearly contoured, schematic, exterior forms stand in contrast to the very personal content.         His work frequently references the human body and human touch as well their absence. For Balconies a new series of works maneuver the fragile intermediate area between the public and private sphere.

The exhibition is kindly supported by the Ministry of Culture and Media of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg,                     the Hamburgische Kulturstiftung, and the Leinemann-Stiftung für Bildung und Kunst.
