Overview

Maya Schweizer is an artist her practice operates at the interface between art and film, documentary and fiction. In her video works and installations, the French artist utilises representations of seemingly everyday occurrences to liberate hidden narratives. She focuses mainly on the socially marginalized and on cracks in collective memory cultures. For her exhibition at the studio space 45cbm at the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, the artist conceived a video installation, in which the daily routine of Les Milles is caught up by its past – a former brickyard in the town’s centre was used as internment camp for Germans during World War II and served as concentration camp later on. With the use of montage cutting techniques the artist succeeds in letting the past burst into present.

Schweizer’s work was presented at IMMA as part of Art I Memory I Place in 2016.
