Catharina Freuis focuses on sociological structures manifesting themselves – above all – in public areas, spaces that are used by several people in a “non-private” kind of situation, such as art or work spaces. She artistically tries to raise awareness of these long established structures, respectively habits. All this applies to the way of observing as well, when one is looking at photographic works. Her intent is to provoke this attitude by creating stereotype, recognizable model rooms. These rooms experience a metamorphosis in the way that the habitual confidence has to be re-examined.
In Nottingham the artist is going to present the series Gallery Room (2010):
