Katharina Forster

As an interdisciplinary artist I work in sculpture and installation using everyday materials such as used teabags, candle wax, colourful plastics and others. Others might include empty birds nests, 1-Euro cents or pacifiers and disposable diapers.

I am intrigued by the diversity and interconnectedness of our world today.
How whatever we do today, no matter how small or big, affects others on an immediate and global scale.
Thus, I like to draw connections between different topics, which reflect in my work through my choice of materials and technique. It is the work with my hands which eventually brings the whole sculpture or object together.
Finding my inspiration in everyday life and it's global relevance, I am guided by a strong sense for creating a sustainable and peaceful life and caring for nature.​
Having graduated in fine art in South Africa, the history and culture of this country play an important role in my artistic practice. Economic, political, environmental and social issues find their way into my sculptures and installations.

Two shadows
Das „Phaeno“ in Wolfsburg gehört zu den wohl spektakulärsten Architekturen der Region. Bauten von Zaha Hadid galten in den 80er Jahren noch als unbaubar. Die auf sogenannten „Cones“ ruhenden Formen dieses Bauwerks beschreiben eine stark geschwungene Ästhetik. Diese beginnt sich durch die Projektion des Hell-Dunkel-Rasters aufzulösen.

Sea Horse
Sea Horse is inspired by a small antique bronze sculpture found in a temple dedicated to Poseidon, the god of the sea, and situated nearby Kalamata, my hometown. It provides an insight how people living about 2.500 years ago in Greece thought a mythical horse living in the sea would look like. The rare ancient miniature figurine is on continuous display in the archeological museum in Kalamata and it delivers an impression how mental and mechanical skills can turn spiritual ideas into visual and haptic objects. I do admire the practical way of thinking of the early artists and intend with this modern piece of art to raise awareness for these antique skills. This piece was initially created in plaster and additionally cast in bronze only recently. The bronze stand is part of the sculpture and cannot be disconnected.

Void
Void is an installation about energy, a person who is not there, but whose presence can be presumed, and a solid wind blows from the east. The two are connected, but the 'how' is an open story.

Nester
Zeit und Licht sind untrennbar miteinander verbunden. Schauen wir in den Sternenhimmel, so schauen wir stets in die Vergangenheit. Das Licht von Sternen die wir wahrnehmen ist oft tausende von Lichtjahren entfernt. Ein Nest aber ist ein Blick in die Zukunft. Hier wurde oder wird etwas geboren und wir blicken erwartungsvoll auf das, was da heranwächst. Ob gut oder nicht wird sich zeigen.

A Moment in a Glance 1917-2017
A young man, bald shaven, holding a skull in his hands. We don't know what he thinks, what he feels, who he is. His eyes are closed and he seems lost in concentration, his fingers rest firmly on the skull of another soldier. Was it a young man who died a century ago in France, perhaps? One stares at us, the other looks inside.

MODULES II
The cuboid-like shape is a modified Platonic volume. It becomes a module in an architectural structure or a setting that can be hidden or visible. Inspired by the traces of old buildings one might find in an ancient place, the installation calls to mind how these crumbling individual components now only serve as silent witnesses. However, at one time may have been the key element of a wall, or ceiling, etc. Regardless of their prior functionality, the aesthetic potential overrides the previous story.
