On close inspection humour is unmistakeable in the works of Katja Strunz, which address decay in various ways. Writing in the artist‘s catalogue about the sculpture „Yesterday‘s Echos“ (2006) and the video piece of the same name and year, the American writer Suzanne Hudson describes this quality aptly:

For this work Strunz assembles a crowd of small fi gures, who are oddly made up of metal parts, ashtrays and candlesticks. Simultaneously bringing the tinny sounds of marching music together with the crowd, she sets the piece after a fashion in motion. Shortly afterwords follow taller figures, into which Strunz incorporates musical instruments.

At Cruise & Callas Strunz is showing an installation and a sculpture which are both in the same line as this work.
