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.

Maria Montessori als Bienenstock
Auf dem Weg zur Sophienquelle in Grünsberg bei Burgthann/Mittelfranken liegt der Himmelgarten von Burg Grünsberg. Die Anlage kann betreten um werden und das Leben der Bienen hautnah mitzuerleben. Bei Nachfrage bin ich da, um einen Blick in den Bauch der Dottoressa zu gewähren. Der Kunstschwarm bewohnt seit 30. Juni 2021. Die Betreuung mit allen Raffinessen der Bienenhaltung wird derzeit von mir gewährleistet.

Trinity
Meine Trinity steht für "Körper - Geist - Seele". Sie formt sich wie ein Schlüssel ins Leben - unzertrennbar, unverzichtbar - keines darf vernachlässigt werden. Ich kann diese Skulptur in verschiedenen Größen anbieten. Sie eignet sich vom Volumen her auch als große Installation im Außenbereich. Durchblick, Rahmen, Fokussierung durch die Öffnungen.

Lonely
Ein junger Mann kauert nackt auf dem Boden. Seine Beine sind angezogen, der Kopf liegt auf den Knien, die Augen sind verschlossen, die Arme umarmen fest den eigenen Körper. Nichts mehr kann zu ihm durchdringen, er bleibt allein, für sich. Einsam. „Lonely“ ist entstanden in einer Zeit, in der Menschen sich mehr oder minder gezwungen und ungewollt zurückziehen, sich einschränken mussten. Die Plastik soll jedoch zu eigenen Gedanken anstoßen: Der Mensch ist klein, wenn er sich nicht entfalten, nicht aufrecht stehen kann. Und allein, einsam, wenn er nicht aufblicken kann, um das Positive im Leben wahrnehmen zu können…

Auzolan
CARACTERÍSTICAS Abstracto. Para su elaboración se utiliza tabla de roble antiguo y madera de boj. Es un cuadro, quizás un bajorrelieve. Con las tablas de roble se ha formado el fondo del cuadro y el marco. Con el boj se han ido realizando figuras que se han ido uniendo entre ellas y pegado al cuadro. El acabado general es el lijado y encerado. DESCRIPCIÓN El auzolan es una figura o forma de trabajo que todavía persiste en la zona norte de Navarra. Significa trabajo vecinal y es una prestación que ofrecen los vecinos de un pueblo de manera gratuita en beneficio de lo público. Se reúnen las gentes del lugar con el objetivo de realizar mejoras, arreglos o acondicionamiento de lugares para determinado uso. Cada persona aporta sus conocimientos, medios de trabajo y herramientas. Antaño por este método se cubrían todas las necesidades generales de una población: traída de aguas, ejecución de caminos, acondicionamiento de edificios públicos, arreglos en el alumbrado, restauración de fuentes, etc. Hoy en día son ejecutados por empresas privadas. En la actualidad está más enfocada hacia aspectos lúdicos y festivos. En el cuadro se representa figuras unidas por un objetivo común. Siempre hay alguno que no participa del trabajo pero se aprovecha de los beneficios.

Minotaurus
The Minotaur, according to Greek mythology, was a beast with a man's body and the head and tail of a bull. The ancient Greek god of the seas, Poseidon, had sent to the king of Crete, Minos, a white bull to be given as a sacrifice to please Poseidon himself. When the king kept the white animal as his own and sacrificed another bull, Poseidon punished him by instigating his wife, Pasiphae, to fall in love with the animal, to sleep with it and finally to give birth to the Minotaur. The "Minotaur" is cast in bronze and fixed to a pedestal which itself is a residue of the bronze casting process.

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 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.

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.
