VITA

DURA is an 29 years old artist and musican working mostly with metal, visual media installations and live performances.
She grew up in Hanover, Germany. She finishing her art-degree at

Burg Giebichenstein, Halle Saale by Prof. Andrea Zaumseil and in Dresden (HfBK, class of sculpture Prof. Wilhelm Mundt). 
 
She often mix contrary materials to create an childish affective reaction by the viewers. Her sculptures are mostly heavy, massive and minimal or showing mounted animals in unusual situations and postures.

Combined with her visual media installations and live performances, it is important for her to address the primal instinct, to get a deep reaction and movement next to the lifeless sculptures by treading the room.
