Katrin Korfmann will be featured in a solo exhibit titled 'Ensembles Assembled' at Kopeikin Gallery. The exhibition will be on view from September 13 until October 18,, 2014.

Katrin Korfmann grew up in Berlin, Germany and lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. She studied at the Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, where she specialised in photography and continued her research with residencies at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam, Cittadellarte in Biella and the Chinese European Art Centre in Xiamen, China.

Owing to her background in photography, Katrin Korfmann’s work in various media – photo works, videos and installations – is concerned with concepts of framing, perspective, and the social dimensions of perception, such as the relationship between the observer and the observed.
An important determinant in her work is time, made visible through the presentation of different sequential incidents that have been registered within a given period and location, in one single spatial arrangement. The issue of responsibility for the existence of an image, the choice of the right moment and the framing that determines an image also play an important role in her work. Korfmann’s work may be characterised by a formal level of composition, structure and spatiotemporal experience, that is aimed at the registration and investigation of social constructions and behaviour in public space.
Since the late 1990s her work has been exhibited internationally in galleries, museums, alternative art institutions and public spaces. Her work is represented in numerous private and public international collections.
Additionally to her artistic practice she is a tutor at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague and an advisor for the Dutch Mondriaan Fund.

She won several prizes for her work, including the Radostar Prize (CH), Prix de Rome (2nd prize) and the Esther Kroon Award (NL), and she received grants from international institutions like the Robert Bosch Foundation,
the Akademie der Künste Berlin (DE), and the Mondriaan Fund (NL).
