Marres, House for Contemporary Culture present Katja Mater What We See And What We Know

Marres, House for Contemporary Culture present Katja Mater What We See And What We Know on view October 13–December 8, 2013.

Katja Mater examines ways to capture possible realities. She blends and splits colours, explores the laws of perspective and space, and shows how one medium passes into the other. Mater layers, compresses, stretches and rotates images in time. This way she plays with our expectation that photography captures reality in one single moment. Maters images exist parallel tot this reality and invite us to redefine the relationship between what we see and what we know.

In addition to four new works that Mater produced especially for the exhibition, a broad selection from her oeuvre is presented. In conjunction with the exhibition, Roma Publications presents a new publication on the work of Katja Mater. The book is designed by Veronica Ditting and includes an essay by Maxine Kopsa.

Katja Mater (b. 1979) graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam, in 2003 and completed her studies at De Ateliers in the same city. She was artist in residence at the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture and The Mac Dowell Colony, both in the United States, and Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin. Her work has been shown in, among others, Galerie Martin van Zomeren (2013), Fotogalleriet, Oslo (2012), De Vleeshal, Middelburg (2012), Tanya Bonakdar Gallery, New York (2012) and, Centre d’Art Contemporain, Genève (2011).
