Pola Sieverding

Pola Sieverdings artistic work usually consists of photo series and films in which she illuminates traditional views of cultural structures or motives from a different angle. What is particularly fascinating in her works is her compositional approach, in which her photographs refer to references in art history. With photography, video and sound she investigates the physical body as bearer of historical narratives that shape a contemporary discourse on the social body. Her series of the past years build upon each other and it is a great experience to allow oneself to be caught by her gaze, and to let the tension and staging of her works take effect on you.
