Katharina Fritsch

1956, Essenlives and works in Düsseldorf

The sculptor Katharina Fritsch achieved international success with her larger-than-life sculptures in the mid-1980s and is now represented in important museum collections worldwide. Her works draw on mythology, religion, everyday consumerism, kitsch and folklore. Through the alienation of size and colour, her sculptures - which she herself calls "three-dimensional images" - lose all individual character. Her works represent a lexicon of prototypical ideas in which the factor of seriality and the exaggeration of the pictorial object are often contrasted. Floating between reality and vision, the works unite a feeling for the ambiguous.
