Sculptor Katalin Deér’s specific interest, as Max Wechsler writes in his concise essay, “is geared towards crossing over the boundaries between genres, leading to new and surprising situations for perception itself.” This extensively illustrated artist’s book, published in conjunction with an installation with new works at the Museum Moderner Kunst Kärnten in Klagenfurt, provides an opportunity to appreciate this extraordinary artist, whose work, especially for its reoccupation with architecture, reminds critical observers of the masterfully pioneering works of Gordon Matta-Clark. Exploring the potential plastic dimensionality of photography and investigating the interplay between the two- and three-dimensionality of the pictorial surface, she offers perception reminiscent of cubist or constructivist experimentation. A mind-altering book.
