Artist

Katja Strunz

Born in Ottweiler, 1970 and lives in Berlin

Katja Strunz’s geometric constructions display a patina that brings to mind an artificial ageing and induced historicity. The passage of time and the transformation of materials are key to her assemblages, which often incorporate sculptural elements that reflect a variation on a theme: a series of different cubes or collection of folded shapes that appear to take flight in the gallery. The key to her materials is their physicality: the grain of the wood, the various processes of painting or oxidisation applied to metals. Her works can appear as threatening forms or parasitical growths; zoomorphic gatherings of bird-like folded shapes or cubes performing a Fall into Space. This work gives the illusion that the metal cubes have been frozen in time, held in place by some unknown magnetism, to create a sentence in what the artist calls “room language”.
