Diet Sayler


The Lady Chapel
Ely Cathedral
Ely, England

This retrospective provides a rare opportunity to see the work of one of Europe´s most prominent constructive artists. Diet Sayler was born in 1939, grew up in Timisoara, Romania, and emigrated to Germany in 1973. …

To coincide with the exhibition at Kettle´s Yard, Diet Sayler will make a special installation in the Lady Chapel of Ely Cathedral. "I am fascinated by the light and the very particular expression of this space. So I would like to celebrate this space, working with rhythm, movement and colour. It could be a very interesting space for communication between tradition and modernity but also between church and people."
