Residency: March-April 2013
“My work encompasses installations and sculptures. They are kinetic. Hence they inherit a performative quality. This leads often to collaborations with artists in other fields like musicians, dancers or painters amongst others. The context informs the dimension, shape, material and first and foremost the content of my work.”
Anna Kubelík was born in Lucerne (Switzerland) and grew up in the United States and Vienna, Austria. She studied at Chelsea College of Art & Design before she graduated at the Architectural Association, School of Architecture in London. After practicing as an architect for some years, she has been gaining more experience in the field of performing arts. She has been showing her work, which encompasses Installations at the Music Festival in Aix in Provence, performances at the Academy of Arts in Berlin and at the Contemporary Music Festival ‘Ankunft Neue Musik’ in Berlin as well as installations and directing for ‘Fremde Orte’ at the ‘Radialsystem V – New Space For The Arts In Berlin’. The quality of her interdisciplinary work was awarded with the First Prize at the Art Fair in Cologne 2010. Several scholarships and residencies have allowed her to travel and get inspired by other countries.
Throughout this time she has been developing her own ideas that can be defined as kinetic sculptures and installations. She is able to either introduce them in concerts or theatrical productions, performing them or showing them in exhibitions. Currently she lives in Berlin, where she is working together with composers of a wide range of musical genres and where she is also performing on stages like the ‘Volksbühne’ and the ‘Neuköllner Opear’. She is combining her education in the field of architecture with the performing arts.
