"Domesticated water" (since 2017) [c-prints, variable size] I am interested in the ambivalence of "conditioning" or rather "refinement" of the "domesticated" water in the shape of fountains. They are symbols of power and luxury - in a time period of increasing water scarcity worldwide. Catherine Ludwig, a bavarian artist was born in 1976. She is living and working in Vienna, Linz and Munich since 14 years. Catherine Ludwig is a transmedia artist, transcending traditional barriers between individual media during the process as well as on the result. After studying graphic design for five years in Nürnberg, Catherine Ludwig studied transmedia art at the University of applied Arts (Prof. Kowanz) in Vienna. For her diploma, she got the price of the Kunsthalle Wien in 2006. Since 2004 she is represented in numerous exhibitions national but also international and is in the collection of the Ursula Blickle Video archive. In diverse arist- in-residences the artist is expanding her artistic view and is improving her technical skills (Taipei: 2006, Berlin: 2007, Sochi: 2011, Hartheim: 2012, Judenburg (A) & Laugarvatn (IS): 2013, Detroit: 2014, Gmunden: 2015, Jakobstad (FI), Eckernförde (G): 2016, Bucharest (RO): 2017.
