CATHARINA FREUIS  Mag.a art


   

ABOUT THE WORK
Participation at the Exhibition ARCHITECTURE | LANDSCAPE (2012)

Catharina Freuis puts focus on sociological structures manifesting themselves - above all - in public areas, spaces that are used by several people in a "non-private" kind of situation, such as art or work spaces. She artistically tries to raise awareness of these long established structures, respectively habits.

All this applies to the way of observing as well, when one is looking at photographic works. Her intent is to irritate this attitude by creating stereotype, recognizable model rooms. These rooms experience a metamorphosis in the way that the habitual confidence has to be examined.
