2011, plaster, wax and miscellaneous items

Koren has created a disconcertingly morbid yet comical shrine dedicated to cats in order to humorously discuss the relationship between reasonableness and ridiculousness as well as the thin line between deep affection and obsession. She is fascinated by the way even the most ordinary phenomenon can be turned into something peculiar when its significance is expanded out of proportion. The main element of Koren’s installation is the ludicrous army of relic-like cat heads that creepily appear all around the space. The cat head candles add a feel of bizarre and absurd cult ritual to the ambience.
