Katharina Grosse will drop her first NFT on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18 at 6 PM CEST, as a limited edition that will be exclusively available for 24 hours (999,- USD) on misa.art. The NFT titled NUMBER ONE is a free floating sculpture in space the viewer can interact with.

To create the interactive immersive experience, a sculpture was scanned that was part of Grosse’s iconic solo show IT WASN’T US at Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin earlier this year. 

Her exhibition, a kaleidoscopic painting brought together colours and forms, natural and man-made surroundings, and its visitors as participants in an all-encompassing, pulsating interaction of hues. As a pictorial ground for her work the artist has used the floor of the museum along with Styrofoam elements, shaping, and scaling them to their ultimate dimensions. 

Now the viewer can scale the digital sculpture and explore its shape from all angles. Grosse releases herself from object boundaries and hierarchies in her work to open new perspectives on the possibilities of painting. Reality can always be differently observed and experienced. Now, with NUMBER ONE, she leaves the physical space and enters the digital realm to explore new ways of combining visual and sound elements. 

The collectors of the NFT receive an interactive 3D model of the sculpture, a video of the experience and the code of the interactive experience stored on IPFS. With this edition, the collectors support the Friends of Nationalgalerie with the dedicated purpose to acquire the sculpture and a painting by Grosse. While the physical sculpture will be part of the collection of the museum, the digital sculpture can be owned by anyone.
