An exhibition in the context of xposit 2020: Draw a Distinction


Katharina Scheucher (* 1984) understands the inside of spaces as a surface, comparable to a sheet of paper in which the surroundings are inscribed and whose characteristics the artist repeats with objects made of plaster, which are often prints of special architectural features. The space becomes a map of itself, is emphasized in its features and limits, and is undermined by the targeted use of mirrors, which challenge those present to a constant change of perspective. A sound installation, which throws the noises of the visitors back into the room, also sharpens the perception of one's own presence in the midst of the subtle spatial structure that appears as an actor and dialogue partner.
