Former Studio Artist from October 2013 – March 2014
Andrea Ressi, born in 1970 in Graz, lives and works in Vienna.
She studied Architecture and Fine Arts at Technical University Graz, the Academy of Fine Arts Antwerpen, the University of East London and the University for Applied Arts Vienna.
Ressi works on projects adressing urban geographies and city cartographies. She is interested in today’s transitory spaces, Marc Augé’s idea of „non-places“, the terrains vagues of transport systems, airports, holiday resorts etc. – possible new critical territories in a globalized world.
In her artistic work she uses the same image vocabulary that is affecting our ever changing perception of the contemporary world: the language of signs, logos, icons, pictograms, maps, infographics and cartographic elements. She works in various media forms such as paintings, billboards and installations in public space.
