ABOUT the ARTIST Katharina Forster:

As an interdisciplinary artist I am intrigued by the diversity and interconnectedness of our world today – how whatever we do today, no matter how small or big, affects others on an immediate and global scale.

OBJECTS

Forster’s work includes objects, installations, paintings and video. 
The topics of the work evolve around the complex themes of appreciation and mindfulness: those between human as well as between human and nature.

 By changing the points of view, the works tend to surprise the viewer with unique, inspiring, sometimes provocative perspectives.

 Forster’s work method is influenced by the love for solid artisanal techniques in combination with unusual but mundane materials. The materials are extracted out of their usual context and are placed in surprising new constellations.

PARTICIPATION

Participation is part of the artmaking process.

This website shows sculptures and installations made from everyday materials such as used teabags, candle wax, colourful plastics and others.

Others might include empty birds nests, 1-Euro cents or pacifiers and disposable diapers.

Everybody can participate by collecting material. Until now the majority of the stuff the works are made of are collected and found by many people around the globe. An open call for material is sent out irregular by mail or notified on the website (collection).

Feel free to join in.

INSTALLATION

It is the space which inspires many of the works and leads to installations which correspond with the environment.

Installations are created for a specific space and vary with each new exhibition space in size, scale and meaning.
