    About The Work

    Katja Davar’s series of works and her large format mural of intricate lace patterns point to these complex levels of interpretation. Her work weaves together different techniques and depictions that were created at different times and in different cultures. As we look at and through the lace, we are allowed to participate in former “paradisical” or unspoiled conditions, and the loss thereof. The latter can be put into the context of the 15th century, beginning with the “discovery of the world”, which is connected to the beginnings of the ruthless European colonization. Despite their beauty, Davar’s works reveal historical structures and the distribution of power as well as the colonial continuity of both still present to this very day.
