Free exhibition entry-The Showroom

Compost, Kathrin Böhm

Book now for 15th September - 16th October 2021.

Compost is a unique collaborative exhibition that explores 20 years of artist Kathrin Böhm’s practice. A cumulation of objects and methodologies fills the gallery space at The Showroom, opening up an invitation to contribute to a process of fertiliser-making in collaboration with Böhm: to sieve through, to assess, to archive, and to reformulate by making use of Böhm’s methods of production; working one-to-one, collaboratively, and in public.

Compost will involve a daily, live process of 'turning the heap’, where local groups, colleagues and gallery visitors will actively be using and reusing the material in the space. In this way they will be producing ‘fertiliser’ for the future: for the artist, The Showroom and for everyone who becomes collaboratively involved.

This live programme of talks, workshops, and 1:1 drop-ins will take place both at The Showroom and online. The programme will be updated regularly on the project website,

This exhibition is free and open to all and you do not need a Westminster City Save card to claim free entry. Booking is required.
