Spray-painted Colorful Mountains by Katharina Grosse
Huge mounds of colorful dirt cover the floor and spill out of the space in katharina grosse‘s new installation ‘wunderblock’. the immersive painted environment is filled from wall to wall with spray painted soil, that visitors are encouraged to walk through and interact with. grosse, who is best known for her intensely vibrant installations that tarp entire surfaces of gallery spaces, doesn’t limit her painting to the traditional proportions of a canvas – she uses a spray paint gun to establish her work within interior walls and floors or on building exteriors. ‘wunderblock’ is made up of two parts: the inside exhibition space, a enveloping chroma-filled installation, and two large ‘color-objects’ — colossal, dramatic forms made of glass-fiber reinforced plastic which are placed in the garden under trees.
