Henry Krokatsis:

Due to popular demand, Jerwood Gallery will be extending Henry Krokatsis: SaunaKabin until 6 January 2019.
SaunaKabin takes the form of a hand crafted wooden architectural structure, standing in Jerwood Gallery's courtyard. The Kabin draws on the grammar of the small, feature rich buildings typically found in British parks and on promenades such as: bandstands, seated shelters, ornate sheds like the timber framed tool hut in Soho Square and The Ostler’s hut in Lincoln’s Inn, London.
Made from burnt wood then carved by hand to give a rough hewn exaggerated grain pattern, the structure is raised off the ground, sitting on a central pole which houses an oil impregnated bronze bearing.
The space houses an enclosed burner that heats the interior to 80 degrees Celsius, around which is wooden tiered bench seating. 
Book an hour's session in the SaunaKabin. 
Daily sessions are:11:45; 12:15; 2:15; 2:45.
Combine it with sea swimming at Rock-a-Nore or Pelham beaches, or simply relax in the calm surroundings of this work of art.

  • Normal gallery admission prices apply
  • Please bring your own towel, footwear and water
  • An outdoor natural shower is available, but no soap is permitted
  • You must read the T’s and C’s to ensure that the experience is appropriate for you before booking.
