Adriane Morard (*1987, Montreux, CH) was formerly trained as a multimedia conceptor and shortly worked in the domain of visual communication before travelling for several years throughout Europe, Russia, Asia and Oceania. Her work reflects this experience of a life in zigzag; interrogating notions of territories, of the sense of belonging and of our ever shifting positions on past, present and future perspectives.
In a cold gaze, she navigates within heterogeneous trajectories, exploring the role of the individual in global societal systems. She observes specific aspects of our relation to History and its authority by investigating geographical and ideological territories. Raw materials, found objects and missed-out potentials are kept in a record, establishing subsequent lexical fields and signage systems.
Her body of work formally echoes the discourses of the representations which she playfully puts forward. The disjunction operating between objects and subjects, sounds and images are presenting a fragmented reality in which cracks and empty spaces are leading to a point zero, a ahistorical position in which potentials can materialise.
Adriane Morard works and live between Switzerland and Berlin.
