Annika Kappner (1980 Berlin, DE) explores possibilities of sensory composition combining painting, installation, sculpture, sound, and performance. Her work is interested in the evolution of consciousness, the shifting perception of (self) image in relation to mental patterns and the underlying forces that shape their systemic counterparts in nature, visual arts, technology, and science.

She presented the results of her residency at Centro Selva as a performance lecture. Through a guided meditation she invited the participants to explore the sensorial dimension related to our desires for connection and control.
