Forest time -
objects and costume pieces - 2009

Katharina D. Martin reveals the situatedness of our being through dealing with things in Forest Time. Video itself, as although moving, still flat screen, remains to be something which is there, far from the tactile reality. Exhibited in the gallery space things bring back the remoteness of the video into its tactile situatedness. Such presence of a thing, cannot be though treated as an object of our cognition with regard to which we are entirely separated. Situatedness, which things strengthened, means the meaningful, dynamic spatiality in which we find ourselves as leaving and tactile, thus, connected to things.
