This website features the work of Karin Wach, a German-born artist, writer and psychoanalytic psychotherapist living and working in England. Her work is concerned with loss, memory and transformation. For example, in three major bodies of work it engages with the changes occurring along the Thames through the “transformation of snapshot into medium into painting”. Individual artworks and installations explore other media and concerns.
Karin is showing her work Fusion in the Bermondsey Artists’ Group Outpost exhibition at the Shortwave Cafe. The work is part of the Mill Cycle which celebrates the magic interior of the now defunct spice mill at Butler’s Wharf in the London Docklands. The created image references Plant (cogwheel/machinery) and Plant (spice).

Established in 1983 Bermondsey Artists’ Group BAG is an artist-led initiative that supports Cafe Gallery Projects London and creates opportunities for artists who live, work or study in Southwark. This peer-led network is a rare longstanding grassroots collective, maintaining a democratic framework and consistent core values; to support local artists to show their work and develop their practice.
The Shortwave Cafe is a large exhibition space at the former Peek Freans Factory. This factory is well-known for Damien Hirst’s early exhibitions (also the fantastic BAG exhibition Meme 2007) and will sadly in part be demolished by the end of the year.
The exhibition is open from 21 May to 15 June. Opening hours are 10.00 – 20.00 Mondays to Fridays and 10.00 to 18.00 Saturdays. The exhibition is closed on Sundays.
