Using a spray gun and powerful acrylic paints, Katharina transforms large places and surfaces into oversized installations. The expansive works can be experienced as pulsating, three-dimensional pictorial worlds that include walls, ceilings and floors and can also occupy objects in space. In 2020 the artist will use the historical hall of the Hamburger Bahnhof as well as parts of the outdoor area for a new picture with sculptural elements, which will radically destabilize and renegotiate the existing order of the museum space.
