Konfessions of a Klabautermann

Hardeep Pandhal (Glasgow) presents his introspective world, marked by fantasies and fears of liminal spaces.

Konfessions of a Klabautermann is a new animated video, sculpture, knitwear and rap tour-de-force, exploring Berwick’s location as a real and imagined border and coastal town, and also in reference to the legacy of India’s partition.

The Klabautermann is a mythological Santa-type figure that watches over sailors for their safe return, but sailors are doomed if he is ever seen…

In addition to the exhibition, Pandhal will present a live performance in collaboration with musician Joe Howe.
