Danish artist Katya Sander’s mid-career survey brings together selected works from the last ten years, revised or restaged for Plymouth in 2016. Finding source material on the streets, in the graffiti of public toilets, and through interviews with bankers, this group of work addresses the relationships between language and space and brings the city into the galleries. Using video, photography, text and public interventions, Sander is interested in the public subconscious as the repository of the images we walk past everyday, the spaces we inhabit and the circulation of people, money and goods.
Katya Sander (born 1970) lives and works in Copenhagen and Berlin. She has exhibited internationally including at MoMA New York, Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, Dokumenta12, Tate Modern, Project Art Centre Dublin and Munich Kunstverein. She is Professor for Conceptual and Mixed-media Based Practices at The Royal Danish Art Academy, Copenhagen. www.katyasander.net
