Katharina Grosseat Carriageworks

Katharina Grosse’s much-anticipated installation The Horse Trotted Another Couple of Metres, Then It Stopped recently opened the Sydney Festival at Carriageworks, the cutting-edge center for the performing and contemporary arts in Australia.

This vast and exciting painting—more than 8,250 square meters of folded and draped fabric, suspended from the ceiling, into which the public can freely enter and move around—marks a bold direction in Grosse’s in situ practice. Working directly on-site in Sydney with a team that included local theater technicians as well as members of her own Berlin studio, she has created an immersive installation of unprecedented opulence in terms of its sheer range of color, elaborate contouring, and charged atmosphere.

Carriageworks has created a series of video-interviews with Grosse, including the one here, in which she tells the mythical tale of a knight, his horse, and the search for the meaning of life. Drawn from her childhood memories of the stories her father told her, this anecdote sheds intriguing new light on Grosse’s typically enigmatic titles. To learn more, visit www.carriageworks.com.
