Fischer Saskia

Saskia Fischer’s interdisciplinary practice is characterized by artistic research within queer-feminist discourses, architectural theory and the contestation of a binary concept of nature. Saskia studied fine art at Goldsmiths, University of London (2018), photography at Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen (2015), and attended courses in glass art and sculpture and installation at Estonian Academy of Arts (2014).

Saskia’s research is concerned with the paradigms that form and inform landscape as a reflection of cultural and social values. She examines the ways Western understanding separates anthropological urbanity from a colonial concept of nature, reinforcing problematic notions of femininity and what is ‘natural’. Her working motifs draw on transitory architectures and the fabricated barrier between nature and the commons. This interdisciplinary practice is expressed through photographs and installations synthesizing diverse media blending materials and motives from architecture, mobility, urban planning, landscape design, horticulture, gender studies and art history.
