The German Scenographer and artist Ariane Trümper (1984) studied fashion design in Berlin and worked for several years as film and theatre professional in Germany and France. Due to a strong fascination in the perception of oneself in space and time, she decided to perform a Master in Scenography at the Frank Mohr Institute in Groningen. In Summer 2014 she graduated Cum Laude and since then is living and working from Rotterdam as an independent artist and Scenographer in Germany and the Netherlands.
Ariane’s works are thematizing the experience of the Self towards the surrounding, often filter through technology and the own processes happening in our bodies and during the process of perception. She wants to make other parallel existing realities experienceable and to challenge our way of perceiving the world.
Ariane often works site-specific and uses technologies such as camera’s and screens. She received grants from i.e. the CBK Rotterdam for her research on the experience of space through sound and collaborates with theatre collectives, such as the German collective VOLL:MILCH. She also works regularly as a guest tutor for the Scenography Master at the HKU Utrecht and creates autonomous artistic installations, performances and media works.
