Katrin Bäcker


(Power & Debility in human nature.)


The Berlin painter Katrin Bäcker develops in her works encounters between the imagined (and in the end rather fluid) boundaries of civilisation and wilderness, culture and nature.


Urban dwellers are "abducted" from their familiar context and are set into untouched wild landscapes. Apes and gibbons whose natural habitats are in such wildernesses are shown in human made settings, where human projection and the thirst for knowledge is abandoned.
