Sarah Valérie Steiner


Space, body and movement. An artistic theme to which Sarah Valérie Steiner dedicates herself in her works. Whether through a classical medium such as a canvas or through digital works or even installations, in space the interactions and relationships between people and art are questioned. Sarah Valérie Steiner navigates her own thematic world through a thoughtful concept she calls "Taking Space, Being Space, Protecting Space." In her understanding of space, she implies a more political view by speaking of bodies, gender fluidity, and non-heteronormative relationships. In doing so, she chooses a more playful tone that connects to the concept of "queer joy" rather than a moralizing tone. This allows for a more open dialogue in the space and creates new access points.
