Katrin Fridriks - Stendhal Syndrome, Installation view
KATRIN FRIDRIKS - STENDHAL SYNDROME - FEATURE BY WIDEWALLS
Circle Culture Gallery Berlin is currently showing Stendhal Syndrome, a solo show by the Icelandic artist Katrin Fridriks. The title of the show comes from the series of works she has been producing as her visualization of “a psychosomatic disorder that causes rapid heartbeat, dizziness, fainting, confusion and even hallucinations when an individual is exposed to an experience of great personal significance, particularly viewing art“. The theme has been elaborated through the exhibited works and the overall setup, but most of all, through a captivating main installation of the show including a large canvas work that can be examined through a custom made magnifying glass.
