Exhibition from 21 February - 26 April 2009
The publication documents the exhibition of Berlin artist Kathrin Sonntag (* 1981) at GAK Gesellschaft für Aktuelle Kunst in Bremen whose basic thoughts are transferred into book form. Kathrin Sonntag is interested in the moment a usually thoroughly recognisable object steps out of itself. She is on to the magic that is to be found even in the most ordinary everyday life.
Just as the presentation the catalogue establishes connections that are equally playful and precise between the various represented elements and reveals relations in shape, colour or content in a way that concedes surprising qualities to the used objects and mural works. Furthermore a fictional conversation between Mary Poppins (to whom refers the title of the exhibition and the book) and Grant H. Atkinson (an anagram of Kathrin Sonntag) introduces the approach of presentation and publication.
With a conversation between Mary Poppins and Grant H. Atkinson.
