Nobody fills a gallery like Berlin artist Katharina Grosse and her latest show at the De Pont Museum of Contemporary Art, Tilburg is no exception to that rule. As ever Katharina has tasked herself with turning the stark environment of a modern gallery into a celebration of colour, form and scale. The central installation on display features giant orbs of multi-coloured PVC arranged into a complex labyrinth, inviting visitors to tread a carefully constructed path through the physical space.
Draped across the walls are a selection of large-scale paintings that have never before been exhibited in the same space, demonstrating Katharina’s skill as a traditional painter as well as an artist of exceptional experimental prowess. The paintings showcase over a decade of Katharina’s studio works and bear all the trademarks of her personal vernacular, playing with the physicality of her materials and exploring the nature of paint as an artwork in its own right rathe than just a medium.
You can see Two Younger Women Come In And Pull Out A Table until June 9 at the De Pont Museum of Contemporary Art, Tilburg.
