A site specific installations created by Huttner to include sound, sculpture, images and texts. The artist creates works that present the audience with segments of collected Quantum Police evidence, whether in the form of a recorded interview, mirrored objects, lighting and actual evidence found at The Old Police Station.
London’s Cartel will host the fourth sequel of The Quantum Police, an ongoing investigation by the artist Per Hüttner and curator Anne Klontz. The Quantum Police exist as an international movement but at the same time their presence in society is shrouded in mystery.
For Cartel, site specific installations will be created by Hüttner to include sound, sculpture, images and texts. The artist creates works that present the audience with segments of collected Quantum Police evidence, whether in the form of a recorded interview, mirrored objects, lighting and actual evidence found at The Old Police Station.
Previously, The Quantum Police has been staged in Stockholm, Sweden (DKTUS); Wuhan, China (Manufactura’s Studio) and Brussels, Belgium (Lambert Gallery). During the opening event in London, a catalogue documenting these international events will be available for purchase.
