White Cube Bermondsey is pleased to present an exhibition of recent works, many with historical roots, by Imi Knoebel. An installation of multipart, monochrome paintings in 9 × 9 × 9 pairs new works from the artist’s ongoing ‘Konstellation’ series with a six-panel piece, all of which were first conceived in 1975. The adjacent South Gallery I groups a variety of new paintings, several of which trace their origins to 1968 and 1975. Together the presentations highlight the artist’s playful, evolutionary approach to non-objective art.

In 9 × 9 × 9, three works in vivid cadmium red, titled Kadmiumrot 6 , 9 and 10 (1975/2017 and 1975/2019), consisting of three, seven and five irregular rhomboidal panels, respectively, are inspired by both astronomical objects and Knoebel’s own light projection experiments of 1968, in which fields of light became distorted into complex shapes as they fell on the insides and outsides of buildings. o.T. [Untitled] (1975/96), comprised of three equal-size, white rectangular bars, each formed from two closely abutted squares and stacked horizontally on the gallery wall, was first shown in an exhibition of canvases exploring alternatives to the medium’s traditional rectangular format at the Städtische Kunsthalle Düsseldorf in 1975 and was remade in acrylic on wood panels in 1996.
