Olga Holzschuh lives and works in Cologne. Her artistic practice is characterized by an intensive examination of the aesthetic, social and psychological effects of technological innovations and the impact of these effects on the social an individual body, regarding the production of images. The media of photography, sculpture and performance are closely intertwined along the questions of physical presence and index. The transitory moment forms thereby the core of her work. This is evident not only in her performances – in which she creates situations that trace control practices of emotions – but also in her works with materials such as soap, photographic solutions and metal, that are well known for their shape-changing properties_. Her works have been shown, among others, at EIGEN+ART LAB in Berlin the way we fall, 2021; at KOENIG2 / Christine König Galerie in Vienna (AT) _i wish you were different, 2019; at the Kasseler Kunstverein as part of the Dr. Wolfgang Zippel Foundation Art Award analysis on distance, 2018, at the Gallery Weekend in Krakow (PL) without lashes, 2021; and in the film programme of the exhibition And what about your 'Good Morning, New World?´', 2018 at the Museum of CCA Hangzhou in China.
