Katrin Hanusch is a multidisciplinary artist working in sculpture, installation, print and drawing with a deep and ongoing conversation with materials and processes. Motifs taken from the everyday engage with the human condition in a series of critical investigations bringing together poetics, humour and spirituality. Her often site-responsive works oscillate around ideas of touch/absence/presence and the long-term impact of our doings.
“I’m quite happy to lose pieces of it, and show fragments only. […] Giving works their time to develop, that is something that has become part of my practice.”
