  • This is one of my captivating LH-objects, hand tailored out of latex and filled with human hair. I love that at some places the hair padding is sticking out through the seams. The full aesthetic experience you only have when you touch the objects. The softness of the filling and the unusual artificial outer skin, makes this experience nonpareil! .

  • ‘Katharina D. Martin’s works are touching in their loneliness. Separation seems to be the main theme there – a lonely female figure, abstracted from wider context, although always closely connected to the architectural space, both enclosed and defining it.’ Thank you @marta_zarzycka for finding the right words to describe my work.

  • and is it 'merely' a metaphor? Tears are not merely a primal human act of communication, they are abject and distinct between self and other... “A wound with blood and pus, or sickly, acrid smell of sweat, of decay does not signify death. In the presence of signified death – a flat encephalograph, for instance – I would understand, react, or accept. No as a true theater, without makeup or mask, refuse and corpse show me what I permanently thrust aside in order to live. These body fluids, this defilement, this shit are what life withstands, hardly and with difficulty, on the part of death. There, I am at the border of my condition as a living being. My body extricates itself, as being alive from that border. Such wasted drop so that I might live, until, form loss to loss, nothing remains in me and my entire body falls beyond the limit – cadere, cadaver.” Julia Kristeva . . . .

  • Repetitive structure of Martin’s performances, where difference is artificially re-created by means of the repetition of quasi-identical movements, has important functions through its tendency towards differentiation, distinction and multiplicity.

  • Fold the outside inwards and become form. From elasticity to plasticity. From discarded clothing towards architecture ...

  • Bleib bei mir, wenn du alle Arbeit im Hause ordentlich tun willst, so soll dir's gut gehn. Du mußt nur achtgeben, daß du mein Bett gut machst und es fleißig aufschüttelst, daß die Federn fliegen, dann schneit es in der Welt; ich bin die Frau Holle. #performanceart #identityart #rotterdam #materiality #kdmartin #frauholle #kvirus #art #kunst
