Produced following Katja Davar’s first solo exhibition in the UK, this catalogue focuses on a body of work which makes reference to the threat of deluge explored by Leonardo da Vinci in his drawings and his treatise on water. Katja Davar explores sub-traditions of pictorial representation through her drawings, animations and embroideries on canvas, creating fictional worlds inspired by literature and the multiple images and political issues to which we are all subjected.
Katja Davar was born in London and lives and works in Cologne. She has had solo exhibitions at Galerie Iris Kadel, Karlsruhe, (2005, 2003), Galerie Otto Schweins, Cologne, (2003, 2000), Städtische Galerie Nordhorn, (2001), Bonner Kunstverein, Bonn (2001), PARKHAUS, Düsseldorf (2000) and has been included in numerous group exhibitions throughout Europe.
