The Pump House Gallery in Battersea Park, South London has a new show starting this month. The gallery – who’s logo we designed back in 2008 – has invited German artist Christian Jankowski to realise a major solo project: The Perfect Gallery. The artist has worked with an interior designer and a team of builders on renovating the gallery. Their work has been documented in a video that takes the form of an interior-design makeover programme, presented by Gordon Whistance.
The Pump House Gallery building was built in 1861 to house a coal-fired steam engine and pump to circulate water in the lake of Battersea Park and became a permanent gallery space in 1999 after suffering years of neglect. You can read more about the history of the gallery building here.
