Katrine Køster Holst

Katrine Køster Holst (born 1979, Århus) was educated at Design School Kolding DK (1999-2003) and Bergen Academy of the Arts (KHiB) (2003-2006).

Research Fellow at Oslo National Academy of the Arts (2014 – ). The research project “Minerals and natural phenomena – Artistic expression through rule-based investigations” explores how ceramic art can be developed using techniques based on basic natural principles of landscape formation. The investigations are based on several years’ experience in the ceramic field, and revolves around questions such as how do formations grow, move and/or disappear when subjected to natural circumstances like erosion, depositions of sediments and weathering? What is the connection between the core and the surface of an object? What is the basis of my emotional attachment to clay and landscapes?
