Review of The Koppel Project'sThe Koppel Project, led by Gabriella Sonabend and Hannah Thorne is a creative hub bringing together a contemporary art gallery, project space, cafe and Phaidon pop-up bookshop. Located at 93 Baker Street, London, in a recently decommissioned Barclays Bank vault, the inaugural group exhibition currently on display – Pandiculate! The Joy of Stretching – sees the viewer delve deep into stage-set of unseen characters and absurd trophies amalgamated by tropes equally triggered by the viewer’s curiosity and physical demands of the architecture as commercial function of the bank is reallocated and adapts to becoming an exhibition space.

The term Outpost can mean a remote military station, a commerce site, or a settlement. It always implies forward motion in terms of territory (space), but backward motion in terms of that space lacking civilization in the form of agriculture, plumbing, a legal system, etc. However primitive, like a campsite, or sophisticated, like a motorcycle, an outpost is always pulled in two spatial directions at once.

Reconstructive Memory is an English term borrowed from cognitive psychology meaning that memory is not a faithful reproduction of past events but rather a mental faculty based on recollection reconstruction processes. Depending on our emotions, our level of tiredness, our beliefs, we may reconstruct episodes from our lives in a way that leads to distortions, alterations and false memories.

Hiraki Sawa’s videos explore psychological landscapes, unexpected worlds and the interweaving of domestic and imaginary spaces.

Sawa is perhaps best known for an early animated work titled Dwelling(2002), completed while he was still in graduate school, in which airplanes take off, land, and travel throughout the interior space of an apartment.
