As Sonnenzimmer, Nadine Nakanishi and Nick Butcher have created screen printed posters for clients as varied as Throbbing Gristle, Andrew Bird, The Newberry Library, and Human Rights Watch. Using a mixture of chance abstraction, modernist typography, and representational imagery, the duo has developed a unique aesthetic that pulls from various movements in art history while remaining distinctly forward thinking. Vorab Fabrik or “Beforehand Factory” is the duo’s first exclusive solo gallery show focusing on their non commissioned art work. Pulling from such influences as minimalism, arte povera, and abstract expressionism, the two are making work that forgoes the functionality of the poster yet retains the graphic quality found in their commercial work. Vorab Fabrik features an interactive sound installation, a drawing piano, paintings and so much more.
