Liverpool Biennial is delighted to announce a new limited edition print by Peter Wächtler.

Peter Wächtler creates drawings, videos and texts with richly narrated scenarios, often imbued with humour and satire. With this new work, he references a series of watercolours shown at The Old Blind School for the 8th Liverpool Biennial Exhibition, A Needle Walks into a Haystack. Depicting bourgeois domesticity, the paintings feature repeat appearances by a butler to whom witnessing acts of intimacy, lust, and delinquency is mere administration.

For this limited edition print, the butler returns once more, with ambiguous intentions.

Peter Wächtler’s (b 1979, Germany, lives in Brussels) recent solo exhibitions include !?, dépendance, Brussels, 2013; Springtime, Kunstverein Hildesheim, 2013; B.A.C.K, Ludlow 38, New York, 2013; Salon Of Fear, Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna, 2013; Das Kino im Alten Mühlenviertel, Galerie Lars Friedrich, Berlin, 2012; The Set, Etablissement d’en Face, Brussels, 2011. His work has been included in group exhibitions such as, Meanwhile…Suddenly and Then, Lyon Biennale, 2013; Un-Scene II, Wiels Centre d’Art Contemporain, Brussels, 2012; Melanchotopia, Witte de With, Center for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam, 2011. Wächtler is a member of Etablissement d’en Face and a co-founder, with Hans-Christian Lotz, of the exhibition space Sotoso in Brussels.
