Katharina Fitz

BLOOM - untitled, 2020

Making is at the heart of Fitz’s work: making as process, making as labour and the making of connections between architectural and sculptural space. In BLOOM – untitled, a 2D profile, taken from the space in which the work was born, was translated into a 3D sculptural form.
A tight taxonomy of colour, texture and materials holds the elements of the work together. Its palette is exhumed from the materials themselves. With muted, dusty tones of the flesh of plaster and unglazed ceramic, the work sits quietly within the space as if ready to be animated or still in motion.
The manual labour is tangible. The body of the artist is present as a tool, as an energy and as a force. In leaving the marks and traces of process exposed, the viewer is further drawn into Fitz’s unique exploration of both the object and its making.
