Image of the work planetary opera in three acts, divided by the currents by Susanne M. Winterling

Susanne M. Winterling (born in Rehau, Germany; lives in Berlin, Germany, and in Trondheim, Norway) explores the alliances that might be made across bodies of knowledge, technologies, species (animal, vegetal, bacterial), and the material world. Interweaving documentary and fiction, she highlights how such alliances can inform various kinds of thought and awareness. She employs a range of media—sculpture, video, photography, performance—in a sprawling practice that probes different perceptual approaches and critically revisits representations of reality. Taking inspiration from both natural and digital contexts, she imagines the living and the nonliving creating aesthetic and political solidarities that could respond to current environmental issues.
