An array of images reveal Karl Nawrot’s aesthetic sensibility as a combination of the macabre and the childlike. This exhibition gives an overview of Nawrot’s practice through a presentation of crude monochrome prints.
The exhibition includes representations of various simple models – in some cases these exist as works in themselves – for example, an architectural structure derived from Le Corbusier’s Domino House in which the minimal staircase is replaced by a cave. The display reveals narrative paths through the material, presenting Nawrot’s work as an expanded comic.
Nawrot’s work as a series of his drawings, produced under the pseudonym Walter Warton, are a key component of Eastside Projects’ Manual#5.
