Used to make wide-ranging, spectacular interventions, and to investigate the potential of painting beyond the limits of a frame or a piece of canvas, Katharina Grosse embraced walls and floors as she prepared an all-black environment. From it, printed on iron mail, is the image of her hands in the moment when artistic creation blurs the border between body and colour. In the Venetian contest of water and glare, the fluidity of metal and the colourful liveliness of art load in intensity within a world of dreams that blends reality with illusion.
