Josepha Edbauer (*1995) is a multimedia artist; currently living and working in Vienna, Austria.

Materials carry the previous within them, and through their detachment from their socio-cultural context, are brought into new ones to express. In my practice, contraindications are addressed and narrated through sculptures and transdisciplinary room installations. The starting point are deconstructions of personal circumstances in different systems in which I am surrounded.

Everything carries its own meaning, which results from the interplay. Objects are captured in the spectrum of their historicity and identity in order to contextualize and convey personal perceptions and experiences beyond media boundaries. Playing with connotations between the visible and the invisible is thus a recurring subject, as is visualizing digital phenomena in our analogue society. I translate my analyses into materials that suggest new perspectives in their altered context.

Josepha Edbauer is a founding member of the interdisciplinary artist led collective room69, which develops innovative exhibition formats in between analog and virtual spaces through new media and phygital 3D scanning techniques.
