Artist Katja Novitskova presents “If Only You Could See What I’ve Seen with Your Eyes” curated by Kati Ilves.
The project is based on Katja Novitskova’s creation of a visual language, which tells the stories of the modern high-tech digital society and addresses the emerging relationship between visual culture, big data-driven industries, and the ecology of the world today. The exhibition takes the visitor out of the comfortable mode of touristic art viewing into a claustrophobic space, more similar to a sci-fi movie set than an exhibition hall.
Novitskova, whose career has been on a meteoric rise right from the start, works and lives in Amsterdam and Berlin. She has participated in numerous group exhibitions around the world including “Life Itself” at Moderna Museet, Stockholm; the 2015 Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art; the 13th Biennale de Lyon; and “No Man’s Land: Women Artists from the Rubell Family Collection” in Miami. Her new solo show “Dawn Mission” opens this weekend at the Kunstverein Hamburg.
