Contact Collectionair for details about the artwork:

Material-led, my practice is concerned with the conflicting dialogue between organicity and digitality which I explore in the process of making, combining traditional methods and techniques with digital applications. Recently I have examined ways of deconstructing the digital imprint. My explorations into appropriation and collage of hand drawings I have processed digitally on porous substrates like paper, wood and textiles serve to interfere with the digital mark, reflecting on the dialogue between materiality, the physical process of making and digitality; and our relationship to these.

The exhibited works are made of Japanese paper which is organic, porous and, in places, irregular. It is exactly the porosity and the earthy color of the material that draws me to it in line with the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi.

KATJA ANGELI

Born in: Denmark

Katja Angeli is a Danish artist who graduated with an MFA from the Royal College of Art in 2015. She lives and works in London. Her work projects a surreal, carnivalesque world of shifting shapes, forms and scenes. The work exists within the parameters of assemblage and uses the appropriation and conflation of words, images, objects and space to explore the image as an ambiguous, groundless portal, referencing a narrative about identity, transformation and the relationship between the physical and the digital.
