Florine Leoni and Jannik Giger

Switzerland, Sri Lanka | Visual Arts

Dec 2022-Feb 2023 — Visual Arts

Florine Leoni is a Swiss artist engaged in interdisciplinary, long-term and collaborative projects at the intersection of art, film, photography and performance. Leoni’s artistic practice focuses on exploring and exposing the hidden structures and influences of social and psychological constructs, which are linked to spatial entities and are interwoven with the web of human existence. Her work has been shown in group and solo shows at national and international exhibition venues and film festivals. Leoni has received awards for her artistic projects as well as studio scholarships in Europe, America and Asia.

With his compositions and video works, Jannik Giger is active both in contemporary music as well as in the context of fine arts. The questioning of media and art productions can be found throughout his entire work and is clearly visible in art genre-crossing pieces. A central focus of his work lies on the engagement with staging rituals in the art and music business. Video and sound as forms of transformation-, interference- and communication processes are integral parts of his artistic work. Recurring themes of his work are hierarchical relationships and interactions between author, interpreter, and the piece itself. His works are internationally received in the context of music, film and art.
