ART: Katharina Fritsch

Figurengruppe ART: Katharina Fritsch

Katharina Fritsch is a German sculptor whose work lives and has been shown internationally; including at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Tate Modern in London. She attended Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf studying with Fritz Schwegler. Fritsch and Schwegler both sculptors, share an interest in iconoclastic figures. Where Schwegler’s figures remain reasonably sized or miniaturized, Fritsch manipulates figures by enlarging them and coloring them in stark monotone. Both Fritsch and Schwegler, however, use repetition as a way of unnerving the viewer, making an object that may be overlooked into one with the ability to haunt your dreams. Fritsch’s work calls to attention the way in which a viewer, a worshipper or an artist imposes meaning and value onto an object.
