In his seventh solo exhibition at Kuckei + Kuckei Galerie, Peter K. Koch shows current image-objects as well as an installation developed especially for the gallery. In his works he is always looking for a state that lies between two clearly definable states. Thus, his works can always be interpreted in two ways.

In elaborate handwork Peter K. Koch produces identical-looking parts from individual elements, that individualizes them and makes them appear identical only from a distance. On closer inspection, the elements reveal themselves as filigree individual parts, which in their connection with other similar parts form an additive system. Koch varies this visual principle in his objects, which are often made of hand-painted cardboard.

In his architectural-sculptural installation created especially for the gallery space, he again offers two readings. Inside or outside? On stage or observation post?  Hole or window? In the back or in the front?

Even the exhibition title can be read two ways: oh hell o can be read as an exclamation of horror or joy!

oh hell o
oh hello
oh hell no
oh already bright
