Solo Exhibition by Kathrin Sonntag
Born in 1981 in Berlin, Kathrin Sonntag received a BA and an MA in visual arts from the Universität der Künste Berlin (2000–06). Sonntag distorts, refracts, and fragments quotidian objects in order to inspire her audience to untether their preconceived ways of looking and seeing. Her pictures regularly confound perception of illusionistic space and undermine assumptions about truth in photography.
Sonntag received a German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD, Deutscher Akademischer Austaunschdienst) research scholarship in 2011. Her work has been installed in solo presentations at a range of international institutions including Swiss Institute – Contemporary Art, New York (2009); Kunstverein in Hamburg (2011); Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich (2013); and Aspen Art Museum, Colorado (2013). Her work has also been featured in multiple group exhibitions, includingLeopards in the Temple, SculptureCenter, New York (2010); Moscow International Biennial for Young Art (2012); At Work, Museum für Gegenwartskunst Siegen, Germany (2013); Pictures in Time, Haus der Kunst, Munich (2014); and Photo-Poetics: An Anthology, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (2015), Art Basel Hongkong (2017).
