Sebastian Kite is a multidisciplinary artist based in London, making site-specific installations that investigate our perception of space.
Kite creates experiential environments to choreograph the sensory engagement of people with architectural spaces. His practice lies at the intersection of art and architecture, with a particular focus on site-specificity. Beginning with an analysis of the site, Kite’s installations use structure, kinetics, light, projection and sound as strategies to illustrate new readings of spaces. Kite graduated as an architect in 2010 (Glasgow School of Art, Westminster School of Architecture) and also has a background in music. Kite co-established Kite & Laslett (2010-), an art and design studio in London. To date, Kite has exhibited large-scale installations in London, Milan, Berlin, New York, Hannover, Glasgow and The Hague. Audiences have encountered his projects in off-sites such as prisons, railway stations, bunkers and warehouses, but also the white cube gallery. In parallel with Kite’s current practice, Kite has begun to establish his career as a solo artist.
