Leif Kath (1945) lives and works in Christiansfeldt - Denmark.
The French philosopher Jacques Derrida (1930-2004) says, “a science seeking a content which is the original, the authentic, or the basic is a science about to close.”…. Leif Kath´s art is a fine example of Derriad´s description of the postmodernist era´s deconstruction of modernism. At times, modernism may be delicate. At times, post-modernism may be a postulate. But Leif Kath´s art is neither nor. It´s not seeking truth, it may be interested in the rewarding process of investigating the possibilities of a possible existence of truth, but is more occupied with the image of mental agility.
The overall impression of the contemplation of Kath´s works is one of being relentlessly on the move. Not a goal, but a being, a being on the move. From one being to another… .
Kath´s practice spans, drawing, graphics, painting and large scale floor installations in the form of geometrical patterns with tiles.
