撿到一間房,看見一座城

Intro 計畫的起點

2011年我在歐洲念書,在一次藝術季認識了Kathrin,我們一起造訪了許多城市、美術館、街頭藝術,她讓我再次確認藝術的美好,以及年齡不是關鍵,而是永遠保有純真。回到台灣後我們念念不忘有一天希望能邀請到她來台灣。時機成熟了,她在台北與我生活著,我期待透過她的眼光,和台灣的朋友、藝術家進行一場美感的交換、對話。

Kathrin來自瑞士,她總開玩笑說她住在社會住宅式的公寓,不是什麼大房子,但她心中總有一間房子,向每一個她遇到的陌生人、朋友敞開。

對 Kathrin 而言,生活與街頭的舞台是同一個,她擅長於街上、路邊發現美麗
的材料,看來不起眼的物件經過重新整理、排列,是一個全新的實驗景觀。也因此,Kathrin在不同地方創作的作品都不一樣,一切從零開始,擁抱陌生的環境。或許也正是這雙陌生人的眼,發現了我們總是忘了的平凡驚奇。

跟著藝術家的足跡走,我們將撿到一整座城市的寶藏。

1949年出生於瑞士,創意不曾離開過她的生活,喜歡手工製作的任何事物。
本身學的雖是護理,Kathrin靠著自己的努力與對藝術的熱情發展獨具風格的創作,作品以概念珠寶(Conceptual Jewelry)、裝置(Installation)、及拼貼(Collage)為主。近年更發起街頭編織計畫,用手工藝點綴城市各個角落。Kathrin對於物件的造型、材質有孩子般直觀的感受力,用「化腐朽為神奇」來形容她最適合不過。她走一段路的時間是別人的兩倍,因為她喜歡撿拾、喜歡駐足欣賞路上的景物;每年,她也義務到非洲擔任文化志工,教偏遠部落的大人、小孩用最容易理解的方式,接近藝術;因為這位藝術家相信藝術屬於每個人,且透過分享,藝術確實就在生活之中,俯拾即是驚奇。

立晴,台灣朋友給Kathrin這個名字,因為她希望名字的意思有「帶給大家祝福、喜悅」的意思,她希望能透過藝術帶給人快樂,並且超越文化與距離,連結彼此。

About Kathrin Stalder

As a Swiss, Kathrin always jokes about her tiny apartment. But as an open minded artist, she has a big house in her heart that opens for everyone she encounters.

Born in 1949’s Switzerland, Kathrin has a childlike instinct to perceive everyday object in a different way. To Kathrin, both lives and streets are artists’ stages and studios. She collects material from the streets. She recognizes insignificant objects, and starts a new experimental landscape.

Creativity has always been centered in her daily life. For year, Kathrin has been volunteered teaching arts in African townships. She teaches villagers to “play” with art in the easiest way because she believes that art belongs to everyone. She believes that art exists through sharing. She believes that art is everywhere.
Kathrin creates different works in different places while she is traveling. Wherever she goes, she starts by embracing foreign environments, and she ends by creating surprises and artworks. Kathrin, like many other artists, is gifted of rediscovering beauty in our familiar city.

Originally a nursing major, Kathrin develops her unique style by her efforts and enthusiasm. Her nursing background also made her an artist who enjoys sharing ideas and emotion to others. By doing art, she believes it somehow brings joy and cure. Her works mainly focus on: conceptual jewelry, installation, and paper–book collage. She is also known for the graffiti– knitting project in Basel.
