Carina Pesch (born 1983) studied Social Anthropology, Political Sciences, and Philosophy at the University of Leipzig and at the Orient Institute Beirut. La Pesch's art works range between fiction and reality, always with a strong sense for the specific characteristics of phenomena, people, and places. She creates radio and walking pieces, compositions, performances, and sound installations – some of them site-specific. Her works oscillate between narrative and purely sound-based. Often she uses spoken word that transcends sentences and syntax and reaches a pure atmosphere or emotional quality. She works with high-quality field recordings, voice improvisation, and interviews. For the representation she relies on cut-up techniques, rhythm, and a structure that reflects the core message. She sets in scene encounters and creates contact points in dialogue. Her special interests are personal and social boundaries as well as transcending and blurring them, the confrontation and meeting of different worlds and horizons of experience.
