Artist in Residence – Astrid Welburn

My name is Astrid Welburn and I live and work in Zurich, Switzerland. I am working at NES during the whole of July 2019.

My interests cover border areas. I like to explore my own and foreign limitations, the abysses of human representation and their metamorphosis into new beings. Currently my favourite media are video, performance and installations.

At NES, I am experimenting with performative elements for my video about travelling in connection with the ecological footprint.

To transfer the message I create headgears from synthetic material, from found or given stuff. The translation of the message will find its way from head to feet or the other way round.
