„Like aerial views of excavation sites, landscape fragments, like relics of prehistoric animals – rather large and inescapable, bordered by white fields, Katrin König’s carton prints come into the viewer’s field of vision.
Katrin König has found a kind of home – on detours via Rome, Pompeii, and Norway after crossing the Alps, the Apennines, and the North Sea. A search for traces, outside and inside, emerged from this something that I would call archaeo-graphic.
The technique of carton printing experienced in Rome, the specificity of the material, ultimately of organic origin, the work processes in which she has knelt down, certainly in the original sense of the word – the colors used in the tones of earth, moss, lichen on stone – have also led to an approach, to a discovery of their own structures of experience, their way of depositing, penetrating into other layers of existence.„
