in Cryogénie – Research-creation space, University of Strasbourg. It is through the practice of tracking – wild animals in forest and rural areas, but also injunctions hidden in street furniture – that Katrin Gattinger develops her recent projects and research, of which she shows with Plan B an inventory of proposals in Cryogenics. – Space for research-creation. Combining animal gestures (which create significant forms of territorial marking) with forms and materials (which construct the urban environment), these projects invite us to think about the place of wild, liminal animals in the city. They create fictions, ways of taking a place, of adapting, of “dealing with” and of finding solutions, like so many ways out in the face of constraints. Scratching, digging, licking concrete and bitumen, distorting the defensive and anti-homeless design are sculptural gestures. They summon an imaginary of impertinence and insolence in the face of commandments inscribed in forms and invite us to think about our room for maneuver in a controlled environment. Scenography: Thomas Lasbouygues. Mediation: Amandine Mussel, Quentin Mervelet, Rose Defer. Production: Cryogénie - Research-creation space, University of Strasbourg, ACCRA, Région Grand Est.

Personal exhibition at Les Abords in Brest (France) from 7 March to 1 April 2022, following a research-creation residency at the University of Western Brittany (UBO) and the European University Institute of the Sea (IUEM).
The exhibition shows the first projects relating to Katrin Gattinger's research on tricks: between stratagems of the living environment, visual traps and sound lures, it is the Alsatian wildlife milieu that is summoned to play the surprise.
Two monumental works, on the one hand a 32m long photographic frieze of a nocturnal landscape where many presences escape ("Then leave") and on the other hand a vast interactive installation sound-images, made in collaboration with the composer Arno Kristensen, who reverses the game of glances ("Being the Barbarian of a wolf"), are at the heart of this exhibition.
