|To create her variable spatial bodies Katharina Heinrich uses [amongst other things] the technique of weaving, that has been used for millennia to
manufacture textures and which, in her enactment, is subject to strict rules.
Katharina Heinrich's objectified patterns of thought and ideas of space, that unfold before our eyes as corporeal bodies, ingeniously translate these thought processes into elements that can be experienced with the senses.
Conceived with stringency, but without any fixed form, Katharina Heinrich's sculptures represent the variables of an intricate programme. Just as conception and creation are mutually dependent when developing computer software, so too, in art, does the influence of an idea inform its practical realization, and vice versa. This is particularly true of Heinrich's installations, because practical execution fosters, indeed drives, the potential for development of her artistic ideas.
One might say that Heinrich's exploration of the subject of "space" unfolds with its actual construction.
