Katharina Grosse


We´ve visited gallery Johann König, Berlin that is currently presenting works by Katharina Grosse. Grosse transports painting as such into volume, thus confronting seemingly irreconcilable and incommunicable spatiotemporal modes. Katharina Grosse’s paintings find their way onto a variety of surfaces – onto the walls of exhibition halls, the facades of buildings, and the surfaces of living spaces, but equally onto heaped-up piles of earth, balloons and largescale polystyrene objects, as also onto canvas and paper. In the current exhibition ‘They had Taken Things Along to Eat Together’ she integrates into her painting, alongside the gallery and canvas surfaces, voluminous, laminated polystyrene objects, a sofa and a carpet.
