Das Projekt

Katja Felle opened the doors of her Slovenian studio between the 25th and the 28th of July 2023. People were invited to visit her every day between 16 and 19h. In summer the artist was working on paintings which are going to be part of her upcoming solo exhibition “Hidden/Caché” in KGLU – Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Koroška in Slovenj Gradec, opening on the 24th of November 2023 and will be on view until the 4th of February 2024.

The exhibition will showcase latest paintings on canvas, tapestries and aquarelles. Felle’s works often feature motifs and symbols that appear on electronic devices and screens people look at every day. However, the artist’s intention is not merely to repeat and reproduce images from screens, but above all to draw attention to the multitude of encoded facts that lie in the background, which only the human mind can decipher.

Katja Felle’s paintings depict objects and fragments of contemporary technology, thus establishing a bridge between the historical medium of painting and contemporary technology. She also transforms this link into a tapestry, which she produces herself or in cooperation with the Carinthian Intergenerational Centre. In this way, she broadens the field of contemporary art and attracts and involves the general public into her projects.
