Johann Konig Exhibit by Katharina Grosse

There are some artists who are leaders in their own disciplined field. Then there are artists like Katharina Grosse, who choose to colour outside of the lines.

To the untrained eye, the exhibits at the gallery Johann König, Berlin is at once bold, imposing and unsure of what to make of it all. But after a few moments of taking in the breadth of the projects, one starts to realize Grosse uses the combination of painting, sculptures and architecture to great effect.

Art is not supposed to live in the lines defined by the discipline, and by using the paint to exceed the spatial boundaries our mind creates by seeing the various surface rugs, sofas, walls and architecture, it is an exercise in itself to convince our consciousness to take it in as a whole project, rather than a mess of exceeding proportions.
