Short excerpt from the accompanying text by Jonathan Casciani

To coincide with the launch of the new book from Beam Editions ‘When Seems Become Audible’, Beam Nottingham will present a new solo exhibition by Katharina Fitz the Austrian born Nottingham based artist. Fitz is best known for her sculpture and installation work using industrial materials such as plaster, clay, steel, wood and latex. Fitz's work simultaneously presents both the process and finished object, perfection is not pursued and in that sense the work stands as a counter balance to our globalised world. The work simultaneously embodies an energy that reminds of the need for human beings to connect and remain connected with the material world. The existential threat of material illiteracy, a generation that cannot distinguish between natural and synthetic, machine made or handmade, virtual or real, is a generation that will be unable to change its environment. Without a dynamic understanding of materials and processes, we cannot make informed choices about how we shape our environment. Fitz lifts the veil of perfection and presents us with the inner workings of process.
