In this weekly series, we present artists currently working in our studio. Today, we introduce you to Tegwen Evans who does photography, multimedia, and installation art.
Originally from New Jersey, Tegwen Evans graduated from the Berlin Neue Schule für Fotografie and has since made a name for herself taking portraits in the depths of Berlin’s club scene. In her previous work with the organization TrashEra, Tegwen created pieces which resist replication by integrating additional materials, so that the photos become creations as unique as the individuals within them.
Continuing her work which simultaneously considers body dysphoria, femininity, human forms, disorientation and anxiety through an anthropological lens, Tegwen wishes to find new ways of including the viewers as participants in her art. “People are forced to be involved,” she says. Always starting with an image, she uses mixed media to transform it into a new structure that is no longer a mere photograph, but a manifesto of the living experience. Using painting for the first time at Pilotenkueche, her upcoming work is intended to be a multisensory experience.
