Zita – Щapa. This chamber piece by Katharina Fritsch and Alexej Koschkarow is a precisely conceived installation in three rooms.
The artists created new sculptures and drawings for this work in an intensive period of exchange. In a scenic setting, the eight works enter into a dialogue with one another as if on a stage.
Through playing the Schaulager’s rooms with an artful dramaturgy, an ominous atmosphere arises, and what first presents itself as a domestic situation, quickly switches to an explosive mood.
The content and scale of the elaborately designed catalogue mirrors the complexity and the various levels that Zita – Щapa works on.
