Kristina Matousch (SE)
Using a broad range of different techniques, Kristina Matousch challenges the viewer by using seemingly mundane items and transforming them to objects of desire, violence and force, at the same time alluding to tactility and intimacy. In sculpture, performance and painting, Kristina Matousch manages to intertwine slick surfaces, sharp edges and perfectly cut-out openings with aspects which may be perceived as bodily and messy. Her process is often physical, leaving traces of the actual performance in the making. By adding a violent intensity to everyday objects, Matousch’s work follows in the tradition of minimalistic art, transforming it to a distinctly personal statement.
