Bio

  • I am a German artist who currently lives and works between Chicago and New York, where my mixed-media projects have been featured at White Columns, Thierry Goldberg, Lehmann Maupin Gallery, Sunroom at Wave Hill, and Momenta Art, among other venues. I also have shown internationally at Vox Populi, Philadelphia; Workspace, and Lizabeth Oliveria Gallery, Los Angeles; Inés Barrenechea Gallery, Madrid; Contemporary Art Center, Bretigny; Croxhapox, Ghent; 5533 Space, Istanbul; Gallery Obinger, Kunstraum Bethanien, Loop Gallery, and Stedefreund, all Berlin.
    I was the recipient of the 1-year New York Studio Stipend by the Berlin Federal Government in 2006/2007, and in 2009/2010 was granted a nine-months Workspace Residency at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) in New York. In 2011 I became a fellow at the MacDowell Colony, and most recently I was awarded a Travel and Study Grant by the Jerome Foundation, a project grant by the Puffin Foundation, a studio grant by the NARS foundation, as well as a Process Space Residency by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC), both in New York. In 2017 I will participate in a residency at Latitude, Chicago.
