Katja Strunz (*1970, Germany) is an international artist living and working in Berlin. Her work revolves around the intertwining of time, space and matter. The phenomenon of folding and falling runs through all her genres and stands metaphorically for a kind of post-traumatic compression of space and time, the collapse of here and there, of now and then. Constructed splinters and corners, triangles and spaces seem like fragments violently blasted out. Her work challenges notions of linear time and development, suggesting a double metaphor that encompasses both: the connotation of a lost vision and a potentially new way of seeing. This approach manifests itself in her sculptural works, her expansive installations, and works on paper.
Her work has been featured in solo exhibitions at venues such as the Berlinische Galerie in Berlin, Camden Arts Centre in London, the Museum Haus Esters in Krefeld. She participated in the 30th. Sao Paulo Biennale; the 55th. Carnegie International in Pittsburgh and in numerous group exhibitions at the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich; Haus Konstruktiv, Zurich; Guangong Museum of Art, Guangzhou, China; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; Kunsthalle Basel; among others.
