Annett Zinsmeister
(German, b. 1967)

Annett Zinsmeister出生於德國斯圖加特,目前居住與工作於柏林。柏林視覺藝術與設計大學畢業,學習藝術,建築,文化和媒體科學。自2003年以來,她任教於藝術學校和擔任數間大學的教授。空間和建築是Zinsmeister創作的核心主題,以大型裝置,攝影,素描,拼貼畫和電影的形式呈現。她同時也是許多跨領域學科書籍的作者,書籍在國際間出版,並以建築,藝術和媒體研究等不同學科的結合而聞名。她的作品曾參與多間國際機構展覽並獲收藏,例如紐約現代藝術博物館(MOMA),新柏林藝術中心(NBK),法國奧爾良當代藝術中心(FRAC Centre-Val de Loire)等。

Annett Zinsmeister對建築和空間的定義、歷史、傳統、創新、社會政治背景以及空間結構等極感興趣。她探究日常儀式的起源,形式和日常行為因習慣而產生的效果。她尤其著迷於經歷轉化的特定地點,這些地點有著已發生的不可逆的過去,和充滿著不確定發展的未來,在不同的作品中,她針對特定建築或空間過去的歷史及當下正在進行的發展,進行關於空間感知和設計的研究。

Zinsmeister的裝置作品由她於世界各地不同的城市空間中所拍攝的建築照片組成,最初從1993年東德的Plattenbau(公共住宅)文獻資料和照片開始,當時德國Plattenbau的拆除和重建成為建築實踐中相當重要並引起討論的主題,她因此利用不同的技術將這些具特殊歷史意義的公共住宅的照片,不斷的改變及堆疊,使這些圖像從紀錄文件轉化為她特殊的藝術性語彙。至90年代後期,Zinsmeister將Plattenbau的外牆圖像以Wallpaper牆紙裝置的形式表現,在不同的空間中進行牆紙裝置或投影的創作,她將外部空間翻轉為內部空間,透過讓人們走入裝置,體驗不同於平時的觀看經驗以及對於空間的認知。

她的藝術作品代表著藝術,建築和文化研究的混合物,在創建大型裝置,概念式空間,攝影,繪畫,電影,拼貼畫和文字時,她將理論研究與概念藝術的實踐相融合:她使用模塊化(modular)的原理進行反復的解構和重組,大型的裝置作品讓觀看者具有身臨其境的感官效果,挑戰人們對空間的感知和理解,並為人們認為熟悉的主題開闢了新途徑。
