KATHE BURKHART

Since the mid- 1980’s Kathe Burkhart has consistently explored the complexities of gender roles and their connection
to visual culture. Her well- known Liz Taylor Series uses Pop Art imagery, assemblage and language to critique representation and the sexual politics of identity. For her solo show at Lumen Travo she shows interdisciplinary work including site-specific installations, paintings, drawings and photographs. Two of these installations are haikus made from Dutch chocolate letters, another incorporates the 28 year archive of film stills used as source material for the Liz Taylor Series.
