Katja Bjørn (DK)

Katja Bjørn’s works navigate the fields of body, nature and culture. They find expression in a framework of virtual imagery and sculptural materiality and thematize a crossing between the primordiality of the body and the mundanity of simple objects. Everyday materials are shaped into expressive platforms for video integration, and the videos present the body in ways that challenge the automated and embellished perspective of it, particularly the woman’s body. In video and sculpture, the body is torn from its traditional context and is allowed to exist in all its naked savagery, finality and inescapable humanity.
