Luca Curci – What do you think about the collaboration between It’s LIQUID and Ca’ Zanardi/Venice Art House?

Ingela Johansson – I think that International ArtExpo and it’s LIQUID organization creates global opportunities for artists to show their work, but also to inspire to further co-operations and projects.

L. C. – Can you talk about the artwork you presented in Venice? How is it linked with the festival’s theme?

I. J. – The artwork I showed in Venice was titled Blue Memory, the theme was Future Memories. This painting has a “stamp” of a memory, a feeling of blue and a pose that is reaching out to what is yet to come.

L. C. – What are you currently working on?

I. J. – Right now I am busy in my studio with an upcoming exhibition at The Art Club in Singapore. Apart from painting I am working on an art talk about my monk and Prada paintings. I can’t stop thinking about our fascination for brands and symbols. It must be an interesting subject as we have had over 120 people that have said yes to our invitation.

L. C. – What is art for you?

I. J. – The celebrated French painter Degas once said that art isn’t about what one sees, but what one makes other people see. And that is what I attempt to do.

L. C. – What do you think about International ArtExpo and It’s LIQUID organizations? Do you think they can represent an opportunity for artists?

I. J. – The online presence is an important marketing tool for the artists. The co-operations with Venice Art House and other groups enhances this opportunity.

Katharina Grosse. It Wasn’t Us

Art | August 4, 2020

Katharina Grosse’s paintings can appear anywhere: on a rubber boot, on an egg, on the crumpled folds of a cloth, along a railway line, on the beach, in snow, on a sculptural form, or across a façade and on the roof. Her large-scale works are multi-dimensional pictorial worlds in which splendid colours sweep across walls, ceilings, objects, and even entire buildings and landscapes. Central to Grosse’s artistic practice is this notion that painting takes place not just on canvas, but that it can also permeate every facet of our surroundings. For the exhibition "Katharina Grosse. It Wasn’t Us", the artist has transformed the Historic Hall of Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin, as well as the outdoor space behind the building, into an expansive painting which radically destabilises the existing order of the museum architecture.

tensions in the region. Childhood memories steeped in the drama of war and refugee life recur throughout his art, which embraces themes like home, nation and cultural identity through a variety of media ranging from drawing and sculpture to video, installation and even writing. However, he does not proclaim a rupture between the personal and intimate and the historical and social, but instead perceives a relationship and continuity to be found in his intervention for the Palacio de Cristal.
