Katrin Petroschkat`s research-based practice adresses shifting forms of engagement with media, material and more-than-human worlds. Using sculpture-objects, photography, video and performance, Petroschkat develops methods of involvement that draw on a bricolage of artistic, magical and epistemological practices. Sand, algae, weeds, lichen, teeth, charred wood and other unpretentious counterparts support her curiosity-driven investigations of disturbed landscapes, bodies and ghosts as they reveal resilient relationships behind dysfunctional techno-utopian versions of the present.
Katrin Petroschkat studied Fine Art at Akademie der Bildenden Künste Munich, Cultural Studies at the Humboldt Universität Berlin, and holds a PhD in Applied Art and Culture Studies from the Kunstuniversität Linz.
Alongside numerous public performances, commissions, and exhibitions, her artwork has been shown at Lothringer13 Städtische Kunsthalle Munich, Design Museum Gent, National Gallery Copenhagen, HKW Berlin, The Wrong Biennale and Villa Merkel in Esslingen, amongst others.
Alongside multiple studio subsidies and project fundings, Petroschkat was recipient of several prizes and scholarships, including from Erwin und Gisela von Steiner-Stiftung, Kunstuniversität Linz, Initiative Musik Berlin, the City of Munich, Otto-Eckart-Stiftung, LfA Förderbank and the Bavarian State.
