Often mediated through lecture performances or text-based installations, Lina Hermsdorf’s works respond to the specific site, the architectural setting and the performer she collaborates with. Her portraits and narrative threads explore the way power structures, technology, and biology affect each other to shape our emotional surrounding.

Lina completed a residency at Gasworks in 2016.
