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 seeks to add experiential perspectives to the contemporary relation between human, nature, and technology; addressing concepts of non-duality and otherness, to explore alternatives to the capitalist, exploitative structures of thinking and being. Her work has been presented, among others, at Kunstfort Vijfhuizen (NL), Marres House for Contemporary Art Maastricht (NL), National Museum of Natural History, Menton (FR), Wallace Museum (UK), Victoria and Albert Museum (UK) and Brian Morris Gallery (NY).

During her residency she worked in her research project Latent Colours of the Future Mind II that explores the human desire for connection and control as opposing ends of one spectrum; it looks at the multi-modal experience of connection within Shipibo-Conibo culture and contemporary fantasies of Artificial Intelligence as an omnipotent force.
