Turner Contemporary - Joachim Koester: The Other Side of the Sky:

The Turner Contemporary plays host to an exciting new exhibition from Joachim Koester. The Other Side of the Sky is a film commission that is part of the artist's latest exhibition. Alongside selected watercolours by JMW Turner, the artist plays with differing narratives, through 16mm film, in order to explore and partake in a journey to different times, places and states of consciousness.

This is exciting news, as you can see just how Koester is inspired by the works of JMW Turner, as well as getting the chance to view his film that has been set up alongside a number of carefully selected watercolour paintings by Turner himself.

“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...”
– Joachim Koester
