Artist Statement

Andrea Salzmann lives and works mainly in Vienna, Austria. Her focus lies on developing a feministic practice dealing with questions on how a community is constructed and how it develops it’s own narratives. Therefor she likes to dig in the past to find stories, creators, heros or antiheros. The way history is told and created is of course always doutfull so the strategy of Andrea Salzmann is to research on the construction of the society that tells the story. To develop this kind of projects she asks: What is it that brings the stories to the present and what kind of strategy is useful when you try to develop a history that is understood as a vivid refletion of the presenet.
Therefor she uses all different kind of media, but always starting from a performative approach toward each topic.
