Cinga Samson: ‘a different conversation on representation’ Ocula Conversation Cinga Samson: ‘a different conversation on representation’ Jareh Das

Grace Schwindt Biography

Grace Schwindt, born in 1979, lives and works in London (GB).

Read More

Grace Schwindt is a German artist based in London. Her main artistic practice is focused on performance and film, but recently she has integrated sculptures and drawings as well. Many of her works explore aspects of historical events with an emphasis on social relations. It is however never obvious where she draws the line between fiction and non-fiction. According to Schwindt, her attempt is to clear institutionalised spaces from meaning and to deconstruct narrative structures, well knowing that spaces will always stay loaded with sociological connotations. Her complex multidisciplinary approach allows the artist to investigate events from multiple perspectives, and thereby oppose to the single reading. Schwindt herself coordinates the productions in detail, by writing her own scripts and choreographies and designing the costumes; both the content and the visual elements are treated with great care.

In 2016 Grace Schwindt had solo shows at MARCO in Vigo and at the Institute of Contemporary Interdisciplinary Arts, University of Bath.

Schwindt’s film Only a Free Individual Can Create a Free Society has toured from Eastside Project in Birmingham to Badischer Kunstverein in Karlsruhe, The Showroom in London, Tramway in Glasgow, Site Gallery in Sheffield and Contemporary Art Gallery in Vancouver and was on view at the gallery in 2015.

Her film Tenant. a key work in the development of her oeuvre, was on view at WIELS in Brussels, Void Gallery in Derry, Whitechapel Gallery in London, Collective Gallery in Edinburgh and Spill Festival of Performance in Ipswich. In 2013 she was nominated for the shortlist of the Jarman Award in London. Her performance Clean Air was executed at Playground Festival in Museum M in Leuven, and travelled to other institutions such as Arnolfini in Bristol.

Grace Schwindt joined the gallery in 2013.
