A major new commission and the first UK solo exhibition by artist Amitai Romm. Often combining archaic, mundane and high-tech materials and references – from trilobite fossils to biotech membranes and household spices – Romm makes drawings, sculptures and installations as forms of science fiction.
Amitai Romm (b.1985, Jerusalem, based in Copenhagen, Denmark) studied at the Jutland Art Academy, Akademie der Bildenden Künste Vienna and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. Recent solo exhibitions include: Macula Lutea, VEDA, Florence (2019); Hibernation, Tranen, Gentofte (2017); and How shall the sea be referred to, Bianca D’Alessandro, Copenhagen (2016).
