About: Katja Mater (1979, Hoorn) is a graduate of Gerrit Rietveld Academie and De Ateliers. She has been nominated for the Prix de Rome, the Dutch Doc Award and the Royal Award for Painting.
Since 2009 she has been exhibiting her work in the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy,
Portugal and USA. Katja Mater's work originates from an interest in themes such as the experience of time in photography, the documentation of moments and situations with intangible characteristics, the
exploration of the limits of human perception, and the specifications of the analogue medium
of photography from a meta perspective. Mater's approach is much closer to drawing and painting and through a complex process that involves multiple negatives masks, she opposes
the uniqueness of drawing to the multiplicity of her outcomes.
