Catrin Bolt

In my artistic practice I realise projects that are reacting on and integrating in the situations they are shown in. I engage intensely with the contents and complexity of locations and structures and make them perceivable in a different way by minimal interventions and unusual methods of presenting them. Exploring the various possibilities of art, its perception and thus conception, I try to develop projects beyond conventional exhibition practices, integrating art in daily life and dealing with public space. I am working situative and in different media, according to the circumstances, creating a special kind of fiction by new ways of viewing everyday surroundings.
