The provoking of different forms of perception and triggering of action impulses are central aspects of the artistic creations of Johanna Meßner. The varied ways of working and the choice of material are in a processing exchange with the base concept of the work. The varied artistic forms of expression vary from ceramics, concrete moulds, light signs to videos and knitted creations. The textile material is a coining constant and a strong presence in her artistic creations. In her works Johanna Meßner often relates to autobiographic events, socio-political issues as well as quotes of everyday life.
Johanna Meßner studied art and communication as well as textile creation at the Academy of Arts in Vienna, at the moment she is studying creative arts there.
Born in 1985 in Brixen, she lives and studies in Vienna.
