Vom Fremdsein in der Welt
Kaarina-Sirkku Kurz received a photo work scholarship from the Haus am Kleistpark in 2020/21. She is now exhibiting some of the resulting works. Cora Waschke writes: "In Kurz's work, loneliness is conveyed as an existential feeling of being a stranger in the world. Based on conversations about experiences of loneliness, the artist transfers emotional and physical sensations into images and self-made objects, which she in turn photographs in a distanced studio manner." With her pictures, she not only illuminates a phenomenon of social relevance, but at the same time creates photographs of high artistic substance.
