The latest work by Katrina Daschner—the subject of a T-Mobile New Horizons retrospective two years ago—emerges out of the words of Goethe’s Epirrhema. This is a theatrical and picturesque contemplation on the beauty of nature that delights in all forms of life. The artist’s interest in corporality can be seen in Powder Placenta, but, in this case, it functions on a different basis, as an expression of life.
Sings, dances, performs—all of her artistic work is based on the synchronization of the body and music and the meanings that emerge from this combination. Is involved with the LGBT community. In 2001-2002, right after graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts, founded, along with Johanna Kirsch and Stefanie Seibold, Salon Lady Chutney, an informal performance space. Since 2003, has been performing with the all-female musical and performance-art collective SV Damenkraft, and, in 2009, she founded the queer Club Burlesque Brutal.
