Katrin Korfmann is concerned with people. She studies everyday life and is interested in the perception of senses. Her videos are slices of life. They enhance the doubt about precise meaning: are they a comment on society, on human nature or just registrations? In her photo works, Korfmann creates a significant tension between stillness and movement; her photographic images show affinity with performance, with events happening in time. In one project, she made portraits of people, asking them not to move for two minutes, being the exposure time of the camera. The resulting portraits are vibrant with life and one can almost read the thoughts of the models. Other photographic projects deal with people that are clearly and mysteriously visible, most of the time in the turmoil of public spaces: railway stations, ice-hockey stadiums, or city squares. Korfmann shows how people make use of public space. She is 'timing' the integration of time in the photographic image.
Katrin Korfmann was resident artist at the Rijksakademie in 2000-2001.
She won the 2nd prize at the 2003 Prix de Rome (NL).
