About Katharina Grosse

Katharina Grosse’s large and colorful installations explore how abstract painting functions in a three-dimensional field. The installations take her work on canvas out of the studio into a larger context in which she can isolate certain specific concerns. “They’re about expanding small experience,” she says. “By making something small really large, you slow the information and time down, like slow motion.” Grosse believes that incorporating painting with its immediate environment forms a total system of light and color that painting in two dimensions neglects. For her recent installation at MASS MoCA, One Floor Up More Highly (2010), she transformed a massive interior space into an almost Martian landscape, filled with jagged blocks of styrofoam and piles of soil and gravel painted in psychedelic hues.

German, b. 1961, Freiburg Breisgau, Germany, based in Berlin, Germany
