Johanna Magdalena Guggenberger
Johanna Magdalena Guggenberger (b.1985, Vienna, Austria), studied Social and Cultural Anthropology, Arabic and Islamic studies in both Vienna and Pakistan before joining the Fine Arts Academy Vienna to study under Pawel Althamer and Julian Goethe. Working with seemingly quotidian objects, found following prolonged conversations, with people in places, Johanna seeks to get beyond objective thinking by re-casting her protagonists using sculptural processes. In this way, Johanna’s objects re-sediment both histories and meaning, creating room for new understandings, for contemplation and indeed for new experiences to arise.
