Melanie Ludwig

Year of stay:2024

Melanie Ludwig is an artist from Austria. Her first love was a comic book and narration still plays an important role in her art. Working with film allows her to tell stories, but also paintings and drawings have communicative qualities. In her paintings she is interested in the human body and it's representation in art and everyday culture. To paint or draw becomes an entry point for talking about ideas around flesh and corporeality. During her one - month residency in 2024 at aqb she was working on a series of oil paintings about female monsters.

Her stay was supported by Culture Moves Europe.
