Yvonne Buchheim (Germany) is an interdisciplinary artist and educator who returned to Germany in 2019 after twenty years abroad. Her art explores the body as a home, a concept challenged by the diagnosis of a life-threatening illness. Using biographical narrative and stop-motion film, she reflects on illness and healing intersecting with a pandemic. The resulting artworks are intimate testimonies of fragility and resistance, they visualise the paradoxical, absurd, and existential in life.
Yvonne Buchheim has presented her artworks in numerous exhibitions and installations worldwide, including the Cheekwood Museum of the Art in Nashville, USA, and an underwater sound installation at a public swimming pool in Newtown, Wales, UK. Her recent solo exhibition at the ACC Gallery Weimar was funded by NEUSTART KULTUR from Deutscher Künstlerbund and an accompanying book will be published in 2022.
