Sonnenzimmer

Chicago, Illinois

Artist Statement

Sonnenzimmer’s work explores the contemporary and historic impact of the graphic impulse through exhibitions, publishing, performance, and graphic design. While the duo works in an array of media, their focus is on triangulating a deeper understanding of the role of graphic expression at large. In addition to their self-driven work, Sonnenzimmer actively engages in commissioned projects aiming to reshape preconceived notions of the graphic arts.

Artist Biography

Sonnenzimmer is the collective work of artists Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi. Their collaborative practice was established in 2006 in Chicago. Initially recognized for their idiosyncratic commissioned screen-printed posters, their practice has since morphed into an interdisciplinary toolshed spanning multiple platforms. Their work has been shown in The United States, China, and Europe; with recent solo exhibitions at Vebikus Kunstalle Shaffhausen, Switzerland and Hatch Show Print in Nashville, Tennessee.
