Sissa Micheli, born in 1975 in Brunico, lives and works in Vienna. She studied at the School for Artistic Photography in Vienna and at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Micheli exhibited in several cities such as London, Bratislava, Trieste, Vancouver and Paris.

“Sissa Micheli’s works are essentially multifarious,and communicate in their multiple, epic layers of meaning. The seeable is always referential, acting as a narrative continuation, an additional reading, or pointing to one or more other versions of the story. The works indicate a deep curiosity on the part of the artist, an open astonishment related to the philosophical self-awe of the ancients, in the questioning of being. The known, the everyday, the existent is analysed and turned on its axis in order to examine its meaning and classification – always with seriousness, but especially with the desire to recount, to depict, or to form – with a hint of irony. The strategy is to expose and to veil (or disguise) in equal measures.”
