11 – 13 OCT 2023 Cologne ON PLINY’S PATHS
Artist Exchange Cologne – Tunis 2023.

Karin Hochstatter participated in the exhibition project with two installations.

The first was a four-channel video projection that showed technical traces of use such as color distortions or fading contrasts. For her visuals, she collaged footage of light fixtures and the reproduction of this footage on the screen. On site, she layered the four projection screens of the same footage and the same projectors of different lifetimes in an open-edged frame.

The second installation was an assemblage of wires, foils and screens that experimented with linear systems.

Karin Hochstatter focuses on sculptural, installation works. Since 2010, video installations have also been part of her artistic practice. She uses spatial elements scattered throughout her installations. The starting point is often video sequences of organic material, water and light phenomena, which are dissected into their linear structures, pictorial accumulations and dissolutions.
