German artist Ella Ziegler was the 2019 OSCA International Artist in Residence. She developed a new work for the OSCA curated SUE FORESHORE FESTIVAL in October as well as leading a series of of workshops in June and Sept 2019 for local artists interested in making temporary site-based art in public spaces. Ella is highly regarded internationally within the field of interventional art practice in the public domain.
Using a wide range of artistic methods, Ella’s interdisciplinary observations and reflections lead us through a variety of social situations where she highlights, questions and renegotiates the importance of individual participation in public space by means of context-based actions and performances. Ella’s idiosyncratic practice is simple and radical at the same time, inspiring wonder, provoking curiosity and making us think differently about what we previously considered ordinary.
“I take delight in renewing my own as well as my viewers’ consciousness by highlighting and sensitizing us to what normally passes us by inconspicuously. My independent, idiosyncratic practice is simple and radical at the same time, inspiring wonder, provoking curiosity and making us think differently about what we previously considered ordinary.” Ella Ziegler.
