Heike-Karin Föll (born in 1967 in Bad Cannstatt, DE) works on the materiality and mechanisms of drawing, writing and painting. Her work interplays with everyday media reality and styles, analogue or digital texts and displays. Föll works “post-post”—emerging from no longer solid, former postmodern strategies such as appropriation, quotation, and duplication. Drawing, and therefore also the line as its smallest unit, is prominent in this context. From here, different artistic formats unfold: a book page, a sheet of paper, a canvas, becoming seemingly translucent on digital screens.
Heike-Karin Föll lives and works in Berlin. The exhibition at the KW is her first institutional solo exhibition in Germany, and presents an overview of various groups of work.
Föll studied at Academy of Fine Arts, Stuttgart and the University of Fine Arts Berlin. She also studied art history at Freie Universität Berlin. She is Professor of Drawing at the University of Fine Arts Berlin.
