Nicole Weniger macht in ihren Arbeiten das Verhältnis zwischen Mensch und Umfeld sichtbar. Welchen identitätsstiftenden Einfluss hat unsere Umgebung auf uns und umgekehrt?
Sei es in Form von Fotografien, Installationen oder Performances im öffentlichen Raum. Das Spannungsverhältnis zwischen Mensch und Umgebung steht im Mittelpunkt ihrer künstlerischen Auseinandersetzung.
born 1987 in Innsbruck/Austria, studied Transmedia Art (Brigitte Kowanz) and Art and Communication (Barbara Putz-Plecko) at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
Questions of identity, belonging and social and spatial territories are the core themes of Weniger´s artistic work. How does our environment influence our identity and vice versa? Her projects are staged in the form of performative and photographic interventions.
