Katharina Grosse will release her first NFT this Saturday.
Katharina Grosse will release her first NFT on Saturday September 18 at 6 p.m. CEST, in a limited edition which will be exclusively available for 24 hours (999, – USD) on misa.art. The NFT titled NUMBER ONE is a floating sculpture in space with which the viewer can interact.
To create the interactive immersive experience, a bronze sculpture was digitized and was part of Grosse IT WASN’T US’s iconic solo exhibition at Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin earlier this year. Her exhibition, a kaleidoscopic painting, brought together colors and shapes, natural and man-made environments, and her visitors as participants in a global and pulsating interaction of hues. In addition to the bronze sculpture, the artist used as a pictorial basis for his work the museum floor, the facade of the Rieckhallen as well as polystyrene elements, which were shaped and scaled to their ultimate dimensions in many stages. Now viewers themselves can resize the digital sculpture and explore its form from all angles. The underlying sound loop amplifying the movement and exploding of the sculpture was composed by the artist and Stefan Schneider.
Grosse frees himself from borders and hierarchies of objects, opening up ever new perspectives on the possibilities of painting. Reality can always be observed and experienced differently. Now, with NUMBER ONE, she leaves physical space and enters the digital realm to explore new ways of combining visual and sound elements.
Collectors of the NFT will receive an animated 3D model of the sculpture, a video of the interactive experience and the code stored on IPFS. With this edition, collectors support the Friends of the Nationalgalerie with the dedicated aim of acquiring the sculpture and a painting of Grosse. While the physical sculpture will be part of the museum’s collection, the digital sculpture can be owned by anyone.
Katharina Grosse, first NFT NUMBER ONE drops this Saturday, September 18 at 6 p.m. CEST 4 p.m. GMT 11 a.m. CST exclusively available for 24 hours on misa.art
