Our current guest artist Katherina Heil invites you to come to A - DASH on Saturday for an Open Studio on the 16th of March. Katherina is a visual artist based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. During her work period at A - DASH the artist will work on her ongoing project “Sensory Thresholds”, where she explores scientific images and data in regard to the exploration of the universe and matter.
The third chapter “Cosmographia” originates with her habit of finding cosmic coherencies in images and objects that she collects and creates in relation to the scientific exploration of space and a holistic understanding of the universe. The artist structures them into different non-linear narratives as in poetry in contrast to a logical scientific story. She is overall interested in the two poles of science and fiction/ astronomy and mythology and how these materialise in her work.
Towards the end of her stay she will organize a symposium in which practitioners from various disciplines with a similar interest are invited to contribute to the program (more information on that event coming soon).
During the Open Studio the artist shares a selection of recent works and her current process while staying at A - DASH. While in Athens she is collaborating with the artist Rik Möhlmann (NL) to work cross media and explore both their practices in relation to the project “Sensory Thresholds”.
Katherina Heil’s working period is kindly supported by the Mondriaan Fund, Amsterdam.
