Bau-Xi Photo is pleased to present an exhibition of work by European photographer Katrin Korfmann. Since the early 1990’s, Korfmann has been examining the relationship between the observer and the observed, the effect of the camera on behaviour, and the social codes of the spectator within the public realm. Her dynamic compositions depict social rituals and scenes form everyday life.
The element of time is an important determinant in her work, which is made visible by presenting different sequential incidents that have been registered within a given period and location, in a singular spatial arrangement.
Korfmann’s work has exhibited internationally in galleries, museums, alternative art institutions and public spaces. She has been widely collected in both private and public collections such as the ING Art Collection, European Patent Office and the Robert Bosch Foundation.
