Kat Schneider (b. 1990, New York, NY) lives and works in Berlin, Germany. Her work tempts participants to confront experiences of containment and confinement, control and comfort. Often, she engages materials which play with the tactile and spatial invitation of sculpture as one of an undefined carnality. Assembled forms stage interspecies encounters that often invert or reverse typical power relations, as the ever-shifting boundaries between animal and human, nature and industry rumble underfoot.
She recently presented the solo exhibition Sow’s Honor at King’s Leap Projects (Brooklyn, NY). Her work has been shown at Ku’damm Karree (Berlin, DE), Kimberly-Klark Gallery (Ridgewood, NY), Ben’s Books (Brooklyn, NY), That That Gallery (Los Angeles, CA), Carrie Secrist Gallery (Chicago, IL), among other venues.
