Claire Seringhaus is a multi-disciplinary artist, focusing primarily on the fields of visual, performance and installation work. Her recent work deals with contradictions within the space of identity formation, mind vs. body and memory as art.

 

"Factory" (dreiecksbeziehung)

I approached the Marke.6 project as single-day experiment in short fiction. As a performer with experience in the field of improvisation, I was particularly interested in working spontaneously, on a short timeline, and creating a piece of writing entirely in response to other artists’ material. The quasi-narrative short piece is a simply a rough improvisation, based on the auditory and visual cues provided by Musik & Bild 3.
