Sebastian Kite (b.1986, British-German) is an installation artist based in London. Exploring the intersection of art, architecture and music, his site-specific installations employ light, sound, structure, moving-image, technology and performance to illustrate new readings of spaces.

Kite’s immersive environments are created on an architectural scale, rooted in the embodied experience and the immaterial. Placing the audience at the centre of the experience, Kite seeks to disrupt our relationship with the space we live in, demanding a conscious engagement by questioning our perceptions of time. 

Often performative, Kite works with choreographers, composers and filmmakers to create a collaborative practice. He has exhibited internationally at Import Projects (Berlin), Saatchi Gallery (London), South Kiosk (London), Wanås Konst (Sweden), Arsenale (Venice), Phoenix (Arizona, US), as well as a diverse range of off-sites such as prisons, bunkers, railway stations and industrial sites.

Trained as an architect at The Glasgow School of Art and Westminster School of Architecture, Kite graduated in 2010. Since then he co-founded his own installation agency, Kite & Laslett (2010-13), and has worked as Head of Design at design agency Jotta Studio (2014-17). Kite has taught at institutions such as The Bartlett UCL and Westminster School of Architecture and in 2015 received the Royal British Society of Sculptors Bursary Award.

In 2019 Kite founded Studio SK, a creative platform to translate his creative output into the commercial realm.
