Katrin Korfmann "Gravitation (2 h), Amsterdam"

The Dutch-German artist Katrin Korfmann is a critically acclaimed, multi-faceted artist with photography as a base for further explorations. Born 1971 in Berlin, she now lives and works in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. She has won several art awards, including the Mama Cash Award in 2000, Prix de Rome in 2003 and Rado Star Prize Switzerland 2012. Since the late nineties she has had an extensive exhibition schedule, showing works at home and abroad in galleries, museums, alternative art institutions and public spaces

Korfmann is dedicating her artistic voice to the investigations of time, perception of space and memory, and the behavior of people, both as individuals and as part of a flock. Korfmann is playing with our perception when she, in one single frame and spatial arrangement is visualizing different sequential incidents, registered within a given period and location. The result is quite structural and the composition formal as she transforms real landscapes into cubist flat planes. A finished work is developed from multiple shots, digitally processed and merged together into visual collages. Space is distorted and authenticity disrupted in her cinematic story-telling.
