Review of After White: Michaela Zimmer and Peter Welz at Fold Gallery, London


After White:
Michaela Zimmer and Peter Welz 

Gallery, London

2 February –
10 March 2018

Fold Gallery
in Fitzrovia, London, might be so-called for good reason – an awkward configuration
to curate, it literally folds around the corner, creating an L-shape, in which it
is impossible to step all that far back from most of its walls. It is the
perfect space, however, for the current installation, which comprises paintings
by Michaela Zimmer (b1964, Berlin) and an architectural-cum-sculptural
intervention by her fellow Berlin-based colleague Peter Welz (b1972, Lauingen,
Germany). Working together, they have turned the space into a bisected
corridor, a climbing frame (although I am not sure that climbing would be encouraged),
or discarded scaffold, which visitors are required to walk through, becoming a
part of the work, interrupting and intervening themselves.
