Catherine Biocca

°1984, Rome (IT)
Lives and works in Amsterdam (NL) and Berlin (DE).

In her work, ranging from drawings made with industrial markers on waxed cloth to computer animations, and from space-filling installations made of tape and PVC laser drawing on styrofoam, Catherine Biocca merges different levels of dimensions, reversing and swapping diverse media to generate an unfamiliar reality. The result is a mix of bi- and tri-dimensional elements dealing with displacement, layered with cartoonish imagery and details from science fiction, and boasting a view on human brutality throughout our cultural history.

Exploiting an unprocessed and raw form to question a rather violent – and yet tremendously entertaining – side of life, Biocca understands art as a tool to reveal the emptiness and nonsense of life as its only real sense.
