Iris Dittler, born in 1985, lives and works in Vienna. In 2011 she graduated with a Master’s degree from the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.
Dittler investigates the body in its materiality and experienceability at the intersection of visual art and dance. The centre is her own body space, which becomes visible zonally or demonstrates itself in alternating configurations of tension and tactile-kinaesthetic sensations.
This inner architecture goes through a process of repeatedly rearranging itself and serves as the basis for the construction of objects, installations and gestural-sculptural sequences. They are projections of the physically experienced that make a body-specific logic situatively understandable.
