The tenth solo exhibition in the series wir zeigen is dedicated to the Vienna-based artist Katrin Plavčak. For the Atelierhaus at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna with its impressive columns, the painter and sometimes musician, who was born in Gütersloh, Germany in 1970, has created monumental painted wood sculptures. “Katrin Plavčak combines well-matured painterly skills with ingenious visual wit, which refers to art history just as much as to current social issues. Plavčak manages to open a spatially expanded dimension with her partially installative presentation,“ we read in the jury statement for the Alfred Klinkan Prize, which the artist received in 2020.
