Franzisca Siegrist is a visual – and performance artist born in Switzerland, and raised in Spain.
She holds a MA in Fine Arts from the University of La Laguna in Tenerife and a MA in Artistic Production from the Polytechnic University in Valencia where she studied performance art with Bartolomé Ferrando. She works with objects, installations, video and basically with performance art in a practical and theoretical way.
In her performances she seeks the possibility of her body and observes the relation to time and space. Usually they are simple objects from everyday life she uses to create pieces, transforming their use, taking them out of their regular context and giving them a new meaning.
Most of the topics she works with are related to every day life, such as time, repetition or identity.
The result of her performances ranges between absurd and poetical images, and are often site specific works.
She has shown her work in several European countries and recently also in Asia.
Nowadays she lives and continues her work in Oslo, Norway.
