12 January – 22 February 2016
Katrin Hanusch explores the impact of broken structures, missing bits of information and/or the lack of understanding: miscommunication. Balancing between beauty and coarseness, her works play with the opposed intensities of quick gestures and labour-intensive processes. The works situate themselves between painting, drawing and sculpture.
During the residency she will collaborate with the Edinburgh based sculptor Kim W. Wilson following their mutual interest of touch and materiality.
Katrin Hanusch is an artist based in London. She graduated with a Diploma in Fine Art at Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design, Halle, Germany in 2008 and graduated with an MA Sculpture at the Royal College of Art in London in 2014.
Recent exhibitions include: PROTECHT, Bank Space Gallery, CASS Faculty of Art in collaboration with Whitechapel Gallery, London, 2015; RCA Secret, Dyson Gallery, Royal College of Art, London, 2015; Oversea, Figure Two, BALTIC 39, Newcastle, 2014; Zoom Zoom Zoom with Daniel Bragin, Winterprojects, London, 2013.
