is a contemporary German artist known for her performance, paintings, and installation work. The artists use of materials like black dibond, glass plinths, heavy-metal music, and Goth performers, to confront prevailing power dynamics, sometimes results in unease for the viewer. The subtle body language, constraining spaces, and vernacular materials used in her performances, show human emotions in a formal almost depersonalized light. It's basically the thoughts of the people that are performing in it that, in the end, shape it, she said of choreographing her work. Born in 1978 in Geißen, Germany, she studied under the artist Judith Hopf at the Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main, where she graduated in 2012. Since graduating, the artist has been the subject of several solo exhibitions, including DEAL (2015) at MoMA PS1 in New York and Angst II at the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin (2016). Her piece Faust (2017) shown at the German Pavilion of the 57th Venice Biennale, was awarded the Golden Lion for Best National Participation. She currently lives and works in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
