For Nicole WENIGER, identity is the most important theme of her artistic work. Questions of belonging, adaptation, social boundaries and the corresponding rules of conduct, characterize her artistic research, which she stages in the form of performative and photographic interventions.
The sociology of space, the relation of subject to environment, be it city or landscape, represents another important aspect. What identity-forming influence does the environment have on people and vice versa?
Nicole Weniger, born 1987 in Innsbruck, studied Transmedia Arts with Brigitte Kowanz and Art and Communication with Barbara Putz-Plecko at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
