Based between Berlin and Barcelona, Katharina Arndt creates artworks that aim to challenge the consumerist culture and provide an ironic commentary and a fresh perspective on the world that surrounds her.
“The themes which I most commonly explore in my work pertain to the consumer society in the digital age, specifically the decadence and the superficiality. Through my work I aim to convey the superficiality of material things. Don’t get me wrong, I am not judging those as bad or good - I am as much a part of the world which I portray! But in my work I try to capture the thin line between focusing on the simple pleasures while still allowing room for self-reflection,” comments Katharina Arndt.
