AIR05. ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
SPEECH: Reinhard Braun
Invited by quartier21/MQ and in cooperation with Kunstverein Medienturm, the Berlin-based artist Karø Goldt is “AIR05. Artist in Residence”.

Goldt originally comes from painting. Today, however, she mainly works with digital photography and animated film. Her cinematic works are always influenced by a very individual aesthetics, which she paraphrases with the term “photofilm”. Starting point are singular photographs, film shootings in the literal sense do not exist. Her pointed selection of objects (flowers, tactical aircrafts etc.) respectively alludes to a challenging of the common perception, which is avoided sustainably by an abstract progressive process: she starts out from an analysis of colour intensities, of which the high-contrast density, through the long term cooperation with the duo rashim (Gina Hell / Nina Haddad), unfolds an additional quality with the interaction of image and sound levels.
