Barbosa, Katharina

Conceptual art photo, video, sound, installation

After several years as costume designer the artist have moved in the direction of photography and visual arts. And now work between two extremes:
A series based conceptual intellectual practice, and on the other side a more feminist, political, expressionist. Likely the result of being half Belgian and half Colombian. She usually work with installation, objects, sound, photography and video. Quote: I see my projects as a need, it strikes me that visuality is an essential tool for communication I todays society.
