Franziska Windisch (*1983, DE) lives and works in Brussels. Her work moves between performance, text, composition and installation.
She composes scores for performative acts which interrogate notions of trace, medium, sound and listening and which she then incorporates in linguistic, sculptural and installative arrangements. Situations that illustrate transformative processes and have unforeseen or irreversible results are key to her artistic practice.
