Born in south of Germany, Saskia Bannasch lives and works in Hamburg. She has a degree in communication design at University of applied Science Mainz (2006). Shortly after her graduation she started to freelance as a book-designer as well than working on free projects. 2007 she was a stage design assistant for a art-project in Kanda, Toronto. She deepened this experience now and than by doing stage objects for choreographers in Hamburg.
Saskia Bannasch continued her education in the range of performance and dance. »The body in space« emerges as a major theme of her artist work.
Saskia Bannasch about her work in the booklet »tre cose«: I am engaged in the topic of space, the known and the unknown. I am interested in the relation between space, time and body. From my point of view, the three components are related to each other and they create the volume of space. The decisive factor of my inquiry is not only the visible existence. In fact, I am fascinated by emptiness, which makes me aware of blurred tracks.
I approach the whole extent of space just as I approach the little space inside a space. I use drawing to get a general idea of a room/area/region in a two-dimensional way. Later fractions of my drawings become, again, part of my work as »transcripts«. Chance plays a role in this, as well. I bring out what I experience and tie it in with the observation, continuing to perceive these things. The outcome of this examination is a new perception of the space through a site-specific installation.
