MK Gallery Andrea Büttner
Andrea Büttner

12th Apr - 16th Jun 2013

Büttner’s installation of screenprints, video and sculpture - Little Sisters: Luna Park Ostia, 2012 was one of the highlights of last year’s acclaimed 5-year survey of international contemporary art, Documenta 13.  This work relates to a sisterhood of nuns who grew up and work in a small amusement park near Rome, and it includes a video of the artist asking the nuns hair-raising questions related to value, happiness and spirituality as they ride on rollercoasters and fish for prizes.  The exhibition at MK Gallery re-creates this important installation, alongside videos, sculpture and woodcuts made over the last ten years, shown in the UK for the first time.
