BURN & GLOOM! GLOW & MOON! Thousand Years of Troubled Genders is Katrina Daschner’s most concentrated exhibition to date. It journeys through over two decades of intersectional and queering practices in film, performance, sculpture, and community work produced in Vienna. Daschner confronts, touches, embraces and dreams. She reflects on how to translate the plurivocal yet mostly invisible ways of queer experience into aesthetics. Her work has tirelessly intervened into the patriarchal common sense and its everyday norms in Western society through various proposals of corporeal fluidity she scripts and enacts with herself and the community she relates to. In these scripts the exposure of the body is always violent, while the transgression of that exposure brings pleasure.
