Raum Zeichnung - September 30 until October 28, 2006
“Katharina Hinsberg draws abstract drawings in pencil, on simple sheets of paper. And she cuts the drawings from the paper, with the aid of a scalpel. Finally she hangs the cut-outs, now ›Découpagen‹, as well as the sheets with the analogue empty spaces, as ›Zirkumstanzen‹ on the wall.
In Katharina Hinsberg`s œuvre, the artistic medium of drawing is not merely a means to an end, it does not contrive anything, but develops its own aesthetic, as well as, conceptual qualities: in the sense that, drawing, beyond its evident aspects, as a medium of artistic exploration, experimentation, research and discovery, manifests more than just a line.“
Katharina Hinsberg (*1967 Karlsruhe) lives and works in Düsseldorf. Since 2003 she is professor for drawing at HfK Bremen.
