Zero Per Zero Exhibition

Upcoming at The Kemistry Gallery is a new show entitled "Zero Per Zero: Station" from Korean design studio Zero Per Zero. For their first exhibition in the UK, Kemistry Gallery will present new versions of their well-known City Railway System series, including LED display panels, hand-drawn maps, paintings, and acrylic pieces. Conceived as a new approach of projecting the identity of a city onto its transport map, City Railway System maps retain the orderly graphic of their official transport maps, whilst capturing the character of each city.

Whether taking inspiration from Milton Glaser's ubiquitous 'I Love New York' logo, Hokkaido's famous powder snow or Gaudí's hand in shaping Barcelona, Zero Per Zero's award-winning revitalisation of transport maps connect the stranger to the city in a much warmer and more immediate way than before. The maps will be accompanied by work created alongside the City Railway System which served as a continuation of the studio's exploration of movement within the urban environment.
For sale during the exhibition will be the stunning A0-sized LED lightboxes, paintings, offset and gicleé prints and, of course, the maps themselves. The show opens on the 30 April and will run until the 19 June 2010.
