Publicness: Katya Sander


Publicness: Katya Sander

Friday 2nd September 2016 - Saturday 29th October 2016

Preview: Thursday 1 September, 6–8pm Katya Sander will be in conversation with Ben Borthwick, PAC Artistic Director at 7pm.

Danish artist Katya Sander’s mid-career survey brings together selected works from the last ten years, revised or
restaged for Plymouth in 2016. Finding source material on the streets, in the graffiti of public toilets, and through
interviews with bankers, this group of work addresses the relationships between language and space and
brings the city into the galleries. Using video, photography, text and public interventions, Sander is interested in
the public subconscious as the repository of the images we walk past everyday, the spaces we inhabit and the
circulation of people, money and goods.
Katya Sander (born 1970) lives and works in Copenhagen and Berlin. She has exhibited internationally including
at MoMA New York, Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, Dokumenta12, Tate Modern, Project Art Centre Dublin and Munich
Kunstverein. She is Professor for Conceptual and Mixed-media Based Practices at The Royal Danish Art
Academy, Copenhagen.
This exhibition has been made possible with the generous support of the Danish Arts Foundation.
Some of this exhibition is on the first floor and accessible only by stairs.
