BREATH AND MEMBRANE / Artist / 2022
Stella Geppert’s works are born out of the analysis of movement in communicative and bodily states that are formed and shaped by social conventions. As a sculptor and performer, she defines the medium of drawing as a sculptural imprint of the essential movements of human interaction. Sculptural and performative work is therefore working on and with relationships, which is why she explores the question of the specific and transformational states of body and space, material and touch, contact and resonance. The body’s sensual ability to “think itself into” space, body, material and substance is an important aspect of her work, in which she portrays the human body as a membrane, fragile and vulnerable. This “membrane” is in constant exchange with the outside world and other species. Stella Geppert is a professor at BURG Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle for sculpture and performance. Since 2020 she has been part of the Berlin performance collective for choreographers FLUTGRABEN PERFORMANCES.
