Sculptural sound and video collages as well as installation works that interact with architectural and natural conditions stand at the centre of Raphaela Vogel’s work (*1988 Nuremberg, lives in Berlin). Spatial experience is an essential part of her artistic practice, meaning that Vogel’s work can never be viewed in isolation of its surroundings. To achieve this, the artist favours the use of found objects that she adapts and repurposes. Thus, Vogel disrupts their original function while lending them a new symbolic power. The artist develops her video works alone: she films, slips into different roles and produces, confronting viewers with her intimacy and immediacy.

She studied at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste Nuremberg under Michael Hakimi and at the Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main under Peter Fischli. Her solo show at the Kunsthalle Giessen follows exhibitions at the Westfälischer Kunstverein, Münster; Kunsthalle Basel, Basel; Galerie BQ, Berlin; Kunsthaus Bregenz, Bregenz; Haus der Kunst, Munich, including her 2021 presentation in the Kunsthalle Giessen’s display window as part of the INSIDEOUT series.
 
The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue produced by the Kunsthalle Giessen in collaboration with the Synagogue de Delme, France, the Kunstverein am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz, Berlin and Le Confort Moderne, Poitiers, France.
