ARTIST NOMINATED BY Susanne Titz
Kathrin Sonntag (1981, Berlin) received a BA and an MA in Visual Arts from the Universität der Künste Berlin (2000–06). Sonntag distorts, refracts, and fragments everyday 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. Encompassing sculpture, photography, film, and drawing, her work offers a complex analysis of the nature of objects and the division between fiction and reality.
