|Lothar Götz Lightbox Commission at Chapter' main entrance|
Saturday, 18 February 2012
We have selected excerpts from J.G Ballard's Crystal World and Thomas Bernhard's novel Correction. The artist Lothar Gotz selected the latter book for our reading group as it has had a major influence on the theme's within his art work. We will regularly ask Chapter artist's for a text that has inspired their practice, as it is often a great entry point to the art work.
For a copy of the selected reading material for the launch session please visit Chapter's Gallery or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Lothar Götz’s practice ranges in scale from site-specific wall paintings and room-sized spatial installations to paintings and drawings. There is a clear coherence and dialogue across his body of work through its continual referencing and engagement with ideas about architecture and space and its characteristic use of abstract geometric forms, fields and lines of intense colour.
His work is informed by real factors of circumstance, site, or the particular inhabitants or histories of a building, space or place, but mixes these factors with further imaginary or fantasy ones.
Similarly, many of his drawings represent the floor plans of idealised dwellings, sometimes for specific people or historical figures, sometimes for imagined ones.
Together they form part of an ongoing series exploring spatial ideas for domestic spaces: apartments, houses, bungalows, villas. Colour is used to denote the functions and atmospheres of rooms, or the situations and qualities of the surrounding landscape — whether a chateau set in a meadow or a bungalow overlooking the sea. It also cues off the identity of the person who is thought to live there, in a web of imaginative factors that continually feed into the geometrical arrangement of forms and the colour decisions for each drawing.
Lothar Götz was born in Günzburg, Germany in 1963. He now lives and works in London. His solo shows have included rahncontemporary, Zurich; Kunsthalle Wilhelmshaven and Galerie der Stadt Remscheid, all Germany (2011); Petra Rinck Galerie, Germany (2009) and Chisenhale, UK (2002). He has forthcoming solo exhibitions at DOMOBAAL , London and Städtische Galerie Wolfsburg, Germany.
Public commissions include Platform for Art at Piccadilly Circus underground station in 2007; a collaboration with Caruso St John Architects at the Arts Council England Offices in 2008 and a commission at Haymarket Metro Station, Newcastle in 2009.
He has been on residencies in New York, Shanghai and Guangzhou, and completed an Abbey Fellowship at the British School at Rome in 2010.
