KIOSK invites its new artist as public mediator, Merzedes Sturm-Lie , to share insights into her artistic practice and upcoming plans at KIOSK

In her lecture titled Unexpected Risk Failure, Merzedes Sturm-Lie will dive into topics central to her artistic practice and role as 'Artist as Public Mediator' at KIOSK. Using improvisation and accidents, she explores dynamics of resilience investigating current and historical notions of voice originating from the fields of musicology, medical science, and activism. She’s interested in how these ideas manifest and co-exist as possible agents of empowerment, in an interplay of emotion and reason, nature and technology.

Merzedes Sturm-Lie is also active as a musician, guest teacher and as head of the 'Jadran Sturm & Åsa Lie' artist estate. Sturm-Lie studied at LUCA Brussels, Royal Institute of Art Stockholm and Brera Academy Milan.Her work has been exhibited internationally in, amongst others, Komplot, Brussels (BE); Cabaret Voltaire, Zurich (CH); Flyktig/Fugitive, Valdres (NO); ICC Tunnel, Berlin (DE); Art Contest 2021, Brussels (BE); National Centre for Contemporary Art, Moscow (RU); Index - The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation, Stockholm (SE); Wroclaw Contemporary Museum, Wrocław (PL); SESC Consolacao, São Paulo (BR); Pori Art Museum, Pori (FL); IX International Biennial of Art 2016, La Paz (BO).
