MADE IN GERMANY ZWEI

MADE IN GERMANY ZWEI

Anna-Maria Sommer is a graduate of Hochschule für Musik ‘Hanns Eisler’ in Berlin, where she lives and works. Her work explores the themes of self-liberation, intimacy, sexuality, abuse, as well as life’s extremes and antagonisms. 
Sommer uses video, film, photography, installation and music combined with varied materials, including wood, steel, chains, feathers, meat, blood, knives, mirrors, living animals, ice, fire, water, spray cans and whatever else comes to her mind, as an extension of her work in performance. 
She speaks of the synthesis of the arts and fancies the concept of hybrid art. Anna-Maria Sommer not only pushes the boundaries to their limits but goes further — expressing physically and metaphorically the process of self-liberation, which leads her to the conclusion that humanity finds its origin in a very demonic and animalistic abyss.

PENTHESILEA


This performance is an art-music hybrid about the ancient figure Penthesilea, queen of the amazons.  Set in in the present, the performance, inspired by Heinrich von Kleist’s lurid drama, is an apocalyptic happening — combining original live music, dramatic installations and historical film footage.  The elements are interwoven to create an unsettling tableau where social boundaries and conditionings are deconstructed.  The film dives into the world of the collective subconscious—exploring the battle of sexes and internal conflicts—and in the end, encourages us to follow our own inner voice.

THE PORCELAIN SUICIDES


Fallen Angels -  plagued and tortured. 
High-flying - moving out for a-questing happiness.
This will be my last hope. THE PORCELAIN SUICIDES.
And therefore my lips are longing for the devil’s hand. 
Will he hear me? Will I, myself, hear me? Then I’d be saved. Saved from myself. 
All hell breaks loose and I go into the battle against myself. 
Against myself. Against myself.
HATE IS GENERATED BY SELFHATE - 
SO WELCOME TO THE PORCELAIN SUICIDES.

ATLANTIS


ATLANTIS is a surreal performance where inner states of the human soul are allegorized by the forces of nature. In this living sculpture surfaces are melting and breaking and the spectator is thrown into a huge process of inner transformation and personal liberation.
