old artist lives and works and berlin and new zealand her artwork is brightly colored and multi-dimensional the source of her inspiration is surprisingly the sports world but it's brought so much of my inspiration can be found on the pitch in football when teamwork and interconnection are important movements some positions interlinking different constellations over a big area creating dynamic spaces that are in flux not. a large exhibition of classes work can currently be seen at homburg a bahnhof berlin's museum for contemporary art and most approach works the mingling and mixing of strong colors plays a key role. this is not business being a really interesting experience to see the way the colors meet the material and the paint atomizes birthstone sprains still takes on another shape. and it becomes unrecognizable in some places. and the way it connects in these pipes and slits in the material really changes the perception of the color for these things can't be
6:33 am
imagined or planned in advance of a plot. mountainous shapes made from styrofoam form the canvas. and even the floor is a part of the artwork. katherina cost doesn't use paint brushes she prefers working with a spray paint. newsmonger this is my tool it's like a spear the color comes out at the top. and he has the trick of mine up which allows me to reach spaces high up and to great lengths i think it's expandable with up to 4 metres long just like a ladder which allows me to lengthen the reach of my body and that's what i'm really interested in to change the shape and size of my body in order to reach that little corner at the top without too much effort it's sort of like a magic weapon. off a clump of ones aren't. the screen corner from 998 was a milestone in catalina cos as unbounded artwork ignoring all spatial carriers she

6:35 am
of the painting creates cracks and gaps and it's these gaps in the painting that i'm especially interested in. there's also a model here of the current exhibition in berlin. in a glossy enjoys the fact that her artworks exist for a limited amount of time. it's been with us as i think this great beauty in the temporal limited existence and disappearance of the artworks which lingus and is a long process because it's an advent and the deconstructions are already happening in the present. this impressive piece will also disappear. the exhibition called it wasn't us can be experienced until january. 2021. these days with our smartphones we can easily make phone calls across all countries
