The desire for eternal youth sounds familiar, like pop music, cloying. But, objectively, the desire to never grow old is 100% doomed to failure. Expectations can only be disappointed because no one, really no one, is forever young.
Katharina Arndt looks at the aesthetics of mass consumption in an opulent, decadent society and the construction of lifestyles in the digital age. For her, the theme of the "surface" - social, cultural, material - is emblematic. In the online world, hyperreal and at the same time immaterial, there's only the visual appearance of ourselves and of the products we have to buy. Eternal youth, as something artificial, superficial, conformist. It will be the psychogram of a positivist consumer society, which tries to escape its own transience.
Katharina Arndt (Oschatz, Alemania, 1981) lives and works in Berlín and Barcelona. The focus of her artistic work (painting, drawing, neon signs) is the observation of digital communication behaviour and the visualisation of the aesthetics of mass consumption in the digital age.
