In the course of her show With Words We Touch What We Speak we host an artist talk with Fanni Futterknecht at Neue Galerie Innsbruck on Thursday, January 12th, 2017 at 6 p.m.

Fanni Futterknecht’s works adopt a position that spans media, ranging between video, performance and installation.
In her works she reflects on sociological and social questions, converting them into poetic interpretations. In spatial and plastic realizations and translations, and by means of language, the artist works on – in the form of performance, demonstrations, videos and installations – the construction and deconstruction of scenarios. Performance-installations are understood as processual sculptures, transforming creatively during their staging.
Part of this investigation is a concern with processes of media translation and a questioning of the media employed in each context: the translation of the performance into a video. The video as an exhibition. The installation as a performance.

Fanni Futterknecht studied Fine Art and Video at the Gerrit Rietveld Akademie Amsterdam and the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, and Scenic Arts in the context of the programme “Essais” at the CNDC in Angers, France.
