Mike Nelson

a forgotten kingdom, remembered at neugerriemschneider

Mike Nelson’s solo show a forgotten kingdom, remembered opens today Friday 17 November at neugerriemschneider, Berlin.

Mike Nelson, known for his intricately layered constructions, here returns his installations to their narrative foundations.
a forgotten kingdom, remembered follows his far-reaching survey Extinction Beckons at the Hayward Gallery earlier this year, developing upon and beyond its explanatory work descriptions with a collection of new texts by the artist that echo the bodily impacts of his large-scale work. The show grows from the artist’s short story On Monkeys Without Tails, published in 2020 as part of the anthology The New Abject: Tales of Modern Unease. Set sometime in the future in Nelson’s South London studio, the artist has forsaken sculpture and turned instead to the immaterial language of words - a prophecy now realized through the works on display.

Opening reception 17 november, 6-9 pm
Show continues: 18 November 2023 - 20 January 2024
Tue - Sat, 11 am-6 pm
