her artwork is brightly colored and multi-dimensional the source of her inspiration is surprisingly the sports world but it's got so much of my inspiration can be found on the pitch in football where teamwork and interconnection are important movements and positions interlinked on different constellations over a big area creating dynamic spaces that are in flux and that. a large exhibition of classes work can currently be seen at homburg bahnhof museum for contemporary art and most of what work the mingling and mixing of strong colors plays a key role. this is not this is been a really interesting experience to see the way the colors mean the material and the paint atomizes of births and sprains still takes on another shape. and it becomes unrecognizable in some places. and the way it collects in these pipes and slits in the material really changes the perception of the color for these things can't be

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 the spray paint. newsmonger this is my tool along it's like a spear because it comes out at the top. and she is the trick of the mind up for it to allow you to reach spaces high up and to great lengths and it's expandable it up to 4 metres long just like a ladder it 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 the ones aren't. the scream corner from 1998 was a milestone in catalina cos as unbounded artwork ignoring all spatial barriers she
11:34 am
paints on entire landscapes in bright colors. from a young age i love to listen not but then i did grow up in the seventy's all the clothes were really really colorful i remember orange choses yellow shirts and green sweater vests and the sweater vest wasn't important clothing item until now the other colors to be seen like a miss neves. the purest concrete building in berlin is home to catalina classes studio. before she creates her large artworks she designs a smaller model. currently she's working on her contribution to the helsinki be an olive 2021 in finland. that's also focal is made entirely out of wood and that's why i like to place a wooden structure in front of it because at the moment i'm looking for something that has a kind of a 1st shape. so you see how i can use these models to try out different shapes with a minimal effort and can coat them and paint that distorts the canvas the surface
11:35 am
of the painting and 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. that enjoys the fact that her artworks exist for a limited amount of time. if and 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

11:40 am
ending the right note and holding it is the biggest challenge. i haven't learned much but time's up and the pros are here to play for real. it's an instrument that goes with the postcard landscape of the alps perfectly. now it's my turn will be doing a modern piece i'm told you can actually play anything on the album on world you maybe but not me. and. i just started going at it not really knowing what i'm doing but i don't give up
11:41 am
and i keep playing until they're. ok i would say that was mission not accomplished because it was so much more exhausting than i expected and on the other hand it was so much fun. in the end i was quite proud because i've played the album on and i learned it all in a single day even if it wasn't quite perfect. from one longstanding tradition to the next namely the greek presidential guard in athens they are called f. stillness and they stand guard in front of the parliament bay and night in mind to look boring but for many young men this job is a dream come true they have to fulfill certain requirements like being able to

knew precisely how to put together the traditional uniforms painstakingly doing everything by hand. this doublet is embroidered using a special technique originally employed by wealthy private firms we adopted the skill. here you see the for mellie's as we call the ats and this is white well. you can hardly even see the fabric for all the embroidery it's practically overlaid with. the process of getting dressed presents a special challenge. it's very important to keep to the correct order even down to the garters that have to sit just right otherwise the uniform won't fit and the. this procedure takes up to 45 minutes and has to be repeated every now and today's uniform was introduced over 150 years ago and nothing about the fabrics patterns

fabric and leather to assemble the many elements he needed for his piece. it's one of the most challenging sculptural techniques i know what. not only do the objects have to have something to do with the subject they also have to be of a particular size so they can fit into a certain place in the work. and they have to have the right color since i also use them to modulating light and shade i need just the right color and an absolutely compatible shape of the best thing. every shoe is like a brush stroke the work is based on the photo of thomas but. this pile of computers lamps and other electronics conceals a portrait of nikola tesla the great pioneer of electrical engineering. it takes the artist about 2 months to complete a project like this. a
11:54 am
precise sense of visual proportion is vital when assembling the elements 2. when i do a portrait of a world famous figure i really have to be exact right down to the millimeter for that person to be recognizable in the end. so i've always got to be checking to be sure it's right i have to go to the viewer spot and check everything again and again. if every element isn't in the right place or trade could become a kind of caricature or. patrick pashto exhibits his sculptures in the aleutian art museum in the old town of the czech capital caracas. the exhibition center piece is dedicated to the country's most famous composer untuned
