About Light Matters:

Catrine Val's multi-media project Light Matters centers on exploring the complexities of the female experience across cultures, borders and often fraught realities. For her exhibition at UK 14 in Kassel, Germany, Val presents a site-specific installation of multi-channel videos and performative photographs that reflect the artist's deeply engaged dialogue with Hong Kong women during one of the most fraught periods in Hong Kong's history. More recently, Val has extended her project to work with Ukrainian women seeking asylum in Germany.  In close collaboration with her protagonists, Val constructs an expressive language of gesture and movement, light and dark, sound and silence, creating constellations of experiential portraiture that come together and move apart, illuminating the inner worlds of these women in these moments, and possible paths of encounter between us.
