Harald Smykla

Harald Smykla is a German-born artist who has been London-based since 1988. He studied painting and printmaking at Karlsruhe in the 1980s, and pictorial concerns still inform the ephemeral, site-time, context-specific and frequently collaborative live art practice he has pursued since the late 1990s. He has exhibited and performed throughout Britain and Europe and presented work in Israel and Croatia during the MAP Live Performance Art Exchange programme. He performed as part of East Wing Collection VIII (2008-09) at the Courtauld Institute, London, and at the Quad film festival in Derby, where his Movie Protocol drawings were exhibited (2010-11); and at the launch of UnSpooling - Artist & Cinema at Cornerhouse, Manchester (2010).  He exhibited with England & Co at the Zoo Art Fair (2009), and had a solo exhibition at the gallery Harald Smykla: Movie Protocols & Other Activities in 2010. Smykla has participated in numerous the group exhibitions at the gallery, most recently in Trailer (with Alberto Duman); Wandering Lines i & ii (2011 & 2012) and Screen Practice (2012).
