Catrin Huber, Sketch for As Above So Below 2012

Catrin Huber’s As Above So Below will create a temporary new habitat for Kurt Schwitters’ Merzbarn wall.

In her site-specific installation, collage and wall painting will collide to transform the exhibition space while setting-up a visual dialogue with Schwitters’ work.

In alchemy, the ancient science of transformations, the phrase 'as above so below' linked certain metals with particular planets; the micro with the macro.

Materials, their lives, transformations and representations sit at the core of this exhibition.

Catrin Huber is a lecturer in Fine Art at Newcastle University.
