Mixing pop culture with elements of Surrealism, the French artist's theatrical films take history or myth as their points of departure to create a ‘patchwork narration’

Film

Using a drone to film her own body from a ‘hornet perspective’, the German artist questions the fe/male gaze, and how technology interferes with the physical self.
