Katrin Korfmann grew up in Berlin, Germany and lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
She studied at the Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, where she specialised in photography and continued her research with residencies at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam, Cittadellarte in Biella and the Chinese European Art Centre in Xiamen, China. Owing to her background in photography, Katrin Korfmann’s work in various media – photo-works, videos and installations – is concerned with concepts of framing, perspective, and the social dimensions of perception, and pushes the boundaries of photography and representation.
In the bird’s-eye view people look alike. The idea is to create two dimensions: one when you see it from far away and another when you zoom in and see it from very close. Then you see all the differences: in the clothes they wear, the things they carry.
