Born 1971 in Berlin, Germany

 

 

Katrin Korfmann, is a visual artist based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

 

She studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam. Korfmann works with different media, mainly photography and art in public space, with a main focus on people in urban settings. Based on a concept of photography, her works are comparable to a moment of déjà vu. In her creative discourse she deals with the issues of posing versus acting, observing versus being the object of another's attention. In so doing, she frequently captures seemingly incongruous situations within her images, where lack of control leads to surprise. Her works are exhibited internationally recently in Tehran, New York, Berlin and Amsterdam.
