Growth

Carolin Koss

Growth consists of two videos – one filmed in Iceland, focusing on the preserved and untouched nature, and the other one filmed in a small industrial town by the Ural Mountains, declared an ecological disaster zone due to pollution. The images with their intense colours and structures look quite similar to each other at first, but after a closer look they mean something totally different.

Koss works with various mediums and often creates contemplative and aesthetic works, which embody internal landscapes or call for environmental deliberation.

Her films and video works have been shown on various international exhibitions and film festivals e.g. in Helsinki, Stockholm, Riga, Berlin, Athens, Venice, London and New York.
