“In her artistic work, Katja Schenker often uses everyday objects as her starting point and then subjects them to an astounding metamorphosis to thus create enthralling connections between performance and visual art. Her performances, which generate great physical intensity, bring together poetry and subtle humor in an impressive and aesthetic manner. … The rhythm of the action is often slow and continuous, the gestures performed precise and extremely concentrated.”
