Katharina Grosse knows no boundaries: Her works question the limits of painting, the closedness of a work of art. Grosse creates her works with spray guns, a technique with which she attracted attention at the Biennale of Sydney in 1998. Since then, her installation painting has become more complex, covering objects, then trees, floors and ceilings, and finally entire rooms and buildings. Also for the ALBERTINA, on the occasion of the exhibition Why Three Tones Do Not Form a Triangle, Grosse is creating »walk-in« paintings, which are created on site in the pillar hall. The work can thus only be experienced for the duration of the exhibition from November 1, 2023 to February 25, 2024.

Living in Berlin and Auckland in New Zealand, Grosse (*1961) is one of the leading artists of the present day. She was a professor at the Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weißensee from 2000 to 2010 and at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf from 2010 to 2018, where she also studied herself. Receiving numerous awards such as the Oskar Schlemmer Prize in 2014 are a testament to her artistic influence. Grosse's work is in renowned museum collections, including the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Kunsthaus Zürich, the Kunstmuseum Bonn and the Arken Museum for Moderne Kunst near Copenhagen.Art.Salon
