Visual artist, engraver or draftswoman, Katharina Kreil likes to work with her family. With her husband Marc Calame, she shapes objects, furniture, slabs and pieces of art to sublimate concrete, considered as a cheap material and without nobility, and make it an aesthetic and artistic support. She speaks of “haute couture concrete” and participated in an exhibition with a series of plates printed using a concrete engraving process. And with her brother Aymon Kreil, a screenwriter and anthropologist, she publishes comic book pages in various magazines, and powerfully illustrates a long poem written by him, Hommage aux éponges, an ode in alexandrine (kitchen). Within the framework of the Arctic tour, she intends to take the practice of engraving to the highest latitudes.
