Zorka Wollny

The works of artist Zorka Wollny inhabit a space between art, theatre, contemporary music and dance and are always closely connected to the historic and functional context of specific architectural sites. Wollny understands architecture not simply as a material figuration, but rather as a cognitive space dependent on movement, an expression of cultural conditions and a scene of performative interventions. Following a critical interest in cultural codes, gestures and structural modes of behaviour, which she observes e.g. in art production and reception and in environments of post-industrial work, she develops not only installations and videos, but frequently also choreographic live-performances and concerts.
