Art pavilion to display 30 new paintings by Anselm Kiefer 30 paintings comprising the ‘Klebnikov’ exhibition were displayed in the pavilion as part of Kiefer’s 2005 show at White Cube, Hoxton Square.
Rundell Associates worked with the artist who sought to recreate the materiality and character of his studio space in France where the paintings were produced. The brief also called for a structure that could be dismantled after the exhibition and subsequently reconstructed to provide a permanent home for the collection of paintings.
A full-length central skylight provided illumination without the need for artificial light. Overscaled steel doors emphasised the spiritual atmosphere of the space. The external cladding was formed from rusty corrugated iron to response to the artwork.
The pavilion was sold along with the paintings and is currently in storage pending reconstruction in the United States.
