collection open-pit mining.
Excerpts from a series of works.
Katrin Günther

Since 1993, Katrin Günther is interested in mining processes, both literally and metaphorically. Geological extraction from the surface, the breaking through the earth layers, the drilling into yet deeper strata and the unearthing of what is underneath can be said to be her ongoing concerns. Her large-scale works on canvas as well as her sensitive drawings deal with the struggle and the tension between architecture and space. Urban and abstract spaces take on unfamiliar or uncanny atmospheres. Fragments of architecture and unusual perspectives create new visual spaces in which the everyday mingles with the unknown. Katrin Günthers landscapes are sliced and re-assembled snippets of architecture and a spatial reckoning of the real, which are only restrained by the artists’ exact, even cartographic vision. A fascinating mixture of the imaginary and the real unfolds in order to reveal even the alleged realism as a deception.
