Theresa Büchner develops visual works with a focus on film, photography and text. Making use of visual and verbal narrative tools she precisely selects motifs from her surroundings to form narratives that evoke the poetic attraction of the everyday – not as an end in itself, but to point towards underlying patterns of thought and behaviour as well as challenge their common acceptance. The refusal of one’s ascribed role and the construction of one’s own reality and identity are recurring themes in her practice.
Theresa Büchner (1993, Aachen, Germany) studied at the University of Art and Design in Offenbach and graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam in 2018. She currently studies at Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main. Her short film Demolding a Daughter premiered at the Netherlands Film Festival and was nominated for the Steenbergen Photography Prize in 2018.
Her residency was organised in collaboration with Air Antwerpen and AIR Frankfurt.
