Valeria Abendroth b. 1984

I think it is important to talk about how much we understand what is going on around us. Do we understand what is going to happen to the human body? Do we understand how we grow? Well, is it really good or bad?

Valeria Abendroth works in the area of medical humanities that means between medical and visual disciplinarities. For 6 years, the artist worked as a dental technician and included this experience in her artist practices. She wonders how people tend to change both physically and psychologically in the course of civilization’s development. The key motif of Valeria’s artistic practice is to explore the effects of culture, society, and technological progress on personality enhancement.

 

Valeria’s works were showcased in Museum für Sepulkralkultur (Kassel) and Heidelberger Kunstverein (Heidelberg). In 2018, she became the winner of S+T+ARTS, under which her project was exhibited at Centre Pompidou (Paris).
