Karin Ospelt (* 1989) lives and works in Basel and comes from an educational background of Music and Media Art, followed by Jazz studies in Basel. Her 24hrs project in Tart deals with issues of self-awareness and Introspection. The mythological figure of Kassiopeia is the supporting theme of her performance.The queen, boasting to be more beautiful than the sea nymphs, caused the wrath of poseidon on her arrival. Karin’s light-installation, developed by neon-lit strings stating “I double you” , comes to underline in fluorescent colours the basis of reflection of the work.
Her band, also named Kassiopeia, develops self composed jazz works.
