Katrin Hornek — Latent Soils

September 30, 2021, 7 pm

Exhibition duration
October 1 – November 5, 2021

Katrin Hornek’s work is embedded in the manifold entanglements that govern life in the Anthropocene. Departing from concrete places and substances, she combines their stories with found material and immaterial forms. The inextricable ties between culture and nature, human and non-human actors, between long-term processes and momentary events become potentially tangible. In the framework of the research project The Anthropocene Surge (2018–2022), for example, she traces the transformation of physical samples into datasets and thus the corresponding multitude of connections and interdependencies between analog and digital sediments. For Kunstraum Lakeside, the artist will explore other human interventions in the Earth’s body, creating dense and concrete images of possible pasts, presents, and futures.

Katrin Hornek (b. 1983 in Austria) lives and works in Vienna.
