Elisa Andessner (born in 1983) works in various artistic fields like photography, video art and graphics. The starting point of her works is the thingness of her own body and the corporeity of things. Since 2012 she works on the photo series „Surrender to spaces“, for which Andessner puts her body in relation to existing spacial situations and captures these staged moments by means of self timer photography. The basis of these series is the intense work in the fiel of performance art from 2006 to 2013. A further part of her work is the organisation and the curating of international art projects and exhibitions.
