High Ceilings and Bruises

Christiane Blattmann’s works take architecture and arranged structures of everyday life as their point of departure and question the social and bodily-performative implications of the underlying systems of thought. The series of reliefs created for the Kunstverein’s annual editions are part of a group of works in which she explores the relationship between infrastructure and corporeality. Intertwined snakes transform into knives, forks and spoons. Bodies become carriers of meanings and information, and simultaneously points of passage and junctions of material as well as immaterial flows.
