Katia Bassanini (1969, Lugano, Switzerland) lives and works in New York.

In her work, Katia Bassanini is systematically picking to pieces the most obstinate prejudices towards the domestic, foremost womanly world. Bassanini takes this disadvantage at its best by turning upside-down the prevalent chronology of events: the residues of virtually conceived performances become the starting point and artery of her visual world. Some people would be inclined to call this a “deconstructive approach” of the creative process, but in fact Katia Bassanini is in a lustful manner so familiar with the art and cultural history dealing with comparable issues, that the playing with and tearing apart of the time axis allows her a free approach of preliminarily burden themes. We can’t rewrite books, but their rereading indeed changes over time – Katia Bassanini’s work is a strong, candid contribution to our actualized reading, especially of the self-critical kind.
