Moments from above

about Katrin Korfmann

An important determinant in Katrin Korfmann’s work are observations of specific public places, made visible through the presentation of different sequential incidents that have been registered within a given period and location, in one single spatial arrangement. The issue of responsibility for the existence of an image, the choice of the right moment and the framing that determines an image also play an important role in her work. It maybe characterized by a formal level of composition, structure and spatiotemporal experience, that is aimed at the registration and investigation of social constructions and behavior in public space.

Owing to her background in photography, Katrin’s research in various media — photo-works, videos and installations — is concerned with concepts of framing, perspective, and the social dimensions of perception, and pushes the boundaries of photography and representation. 
Since the late 1990s her work has been exhibited internationally in galleries, museums, alternative art institutions and public spaces. She grew up in Berlin, Germany and studied, lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
