Peles Empire
Skulptur Projekte

Münster, Germany

We are pleased to announce PELES EMPIRE’s participation in the 5th edition of the Skulptur Projekte Münster in 2017.


Artistic Director: Kasper König
Curators: Britta Peters, Marianne Wagner


The Skulptur Projekte is an exhibition that presents the work of international artists in diverse settings around the city of Münster in Westfalia, Germany. Held every ten years since 1977 the exhibition shows artworks in different venues all over the town, thereby investigating the relationship between art, the public realm and the urban environment, and develop new, site-specific works.

For Münster Peles Empire will create a large-scale installation that is based on their many years of exploring the relationship of original and copy, combining their research on the eponymous Peles Castle in Romania with the architectural history of the city of Münster.


Peles Empire has had solo shows at the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum, Ludwigshafen; S.A.L.T.S., Birsfelden (Switzerland); PRO/NUM, London; ten/pm, Copenhagen (all 2015); GAK Bremen, Bremen (2014); Cell Project Space, London; Kunstmuseum Stuttgart, Stuttgart and the GSS in Glasgow (all 2013). They participated in group shows at the Kunstverein Braunschweig, Braunschweig; Kunstwerke, Berlin (all 2015); The Moving Museum, Istanbul (2014); Shanaynay, Paris; NKV Wiesbaden, Wiesbaden; Bundeskunsthalle Bonn, Bonn (all 2013).
In 2011, Peles Empire was selected for Frieze Projects at the Frieze Art Fair in London. In 2007 the MAK Center for Art and Architecture invited Peles Empire to the Schindler House, Los Angeles, as part of its artist-in-residence program. Furthermore they recieved scholarships from the Stiftung Kunstfonds Bonn (2016), Kunststiftung Baden Württemberg (2013) and Hessische Kulturstiftung (2011).
