Katya Sander: Plymouth Arts Centre

Katya Sander
Plymouth Arts Centre, 38 Looe Street, Plymouth, PL4 0EB

Danish artist Katya Sander’s mid-career survey brings together 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, Katya Sander is interested in the public subconscious: 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. Sander has exhibited internationally including at MoMA New York, Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, Tate Modern, Project Art Centre Dublin and Munich Kunstverein. She is also 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.
