Lisa Meixner

Lisa Meixner, born 1983 lives and works between Vienna and Northern Italy. Studies at Städelschule Frankfurt with Simon Starling and at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Accademia di belle Arti Bologna, Italy.

Lisa Meixner works with existing words and objects and creates an enlarged etymology via associative research that becomes installations, moving image work, and sculpture. With a combination of the historical, mythological and personal, she reexamines the words and objects that fascinate her until their meanings are revealed to be increasingly elusive, undermining rigid definitions in favour of varied, even infinite possibilities and understandings. Her works mix personal logic with scientific inquiry in an attempt to depart from linear progression and materialise a never-ending radial thinking process.
