Berlin, 2 May, 2017 (kk) - What is a line capable of and what's in its nature? The artist Katharina Hinsberg pursues these and other questions. The wide range of results she attains will be in the focus of an exhibition at Ketterer Kunst in Berlin. An overview of her work periods and series will be on display as of 26 June.
Ever since her time at the academy, Katharina Hinsberg has not paid more attention to any other artistic medium than the drawing. At the same time she continuously puts this genre to question and transcends traditional functions of drawings – sketch, preliminary and contour – with her impressive works. Paper, pencil and scalpel are the key utensils that the Karlsruhe native uses in a very unconventional manner: The line, executed on the sheet with a pen, is dug out or excavated, positive- and negative forms make her work three-dimensional. It is not so much the drawing she is occupied with, but the line, of which she explores all characteristics and means of expression.
For the exhibition at the Berlin premises of the auction house Ketterer Kunst, Hinsberg created an installation with long narrow strips of color paper that flow from the ceiling and create a three-dimensional drawing in the room.

On occasion of the opening reception of the exhibition in Berlin on 25 June at 11 a. m., the welcome words of Dr. Simone Wiechers from Ketterer Kunst Berlin, will be followed by a speech from Dr. Heinz Stahlhut, curator at Kunstmuseum Lucerne, Switzerland.
