Bau-Xi Photo is pleased to present an exhibition of work by European photographer Katrin Korfmann. Since the early 1990’s, Korfmann has been examining the relationship between the observer and the observed, the effect of the camera on behaviour, and the social codes of the spectator within the public realm. Her dynamic compositions depict social rituals and scenes from everyday life. Time is an important determinant in her work, as Korfmann presents separate sequential incidents from a chosen time and place in each singular composition.
Korfmann’s work has exhibited internationally in galleries, museums, alternative art institutions and public spaces. She has been widely collected in both private and public collections such as the ING Art Collection, European Patent Office and the Robert Bosch Foundation.
Originally from Germany, Korfmann lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
