MUNICH.- Sara MacKillop (born 1973 in Bromley, UK) created the works on view especially for the Capsule exhibition. Her works belong to the tradition of conceptual art and minimalism. The London artist is co-founder of the Artist Self-Publishers' Fair London 2015. She has been the subject of solo exhibitions in the Kunsthalle Charlottenburg, Copenhagen (2013), Spike Iceland in Bristol (2011), White Columns in New York (2011) and Whitechapel Project Space in London (2009).

Upon entering her space, visitors leaving the dark realm of Capsule 05 enter into the light. The new works are minimalistic, airy and individual assemblages. Similar in design to earlier works, such as "Pens" (2006), in which the artist combined the same type of pens to form a kind of post, these assemblages are rooted in the everyday. They initially appear to consist of ordinary office materials, such as envelopes. However, the selected motifs - pens, cartridges and paper - are gradually disappearing from general use as they become outdated. The change in their scale and transformation of their original function gives the works a decisive ephemeral twist. What looks like a mass product is a non-functional object, imbued instead with a poetic quality. The articles are newly encrypted.

Sara MacKillop organizes the objects into three islands that are linked through repeated motifs and objects. There is an informal quality: The wrapping paper is unrolled and can potentially be rerolled, and the book covers hang from the space’s architecture or from other objects - many of the objects also overlap physically. The arrangements do not have a final form, but with their flexible, short-term, or temporary quality link to a window display.

An artist's book in an edition of 200 accompanies the exhibition.
