Lindy Annis

Lindy Annis studied in New York at N.Y.U.’s Experimental Theater Wing and has been based in Berlin, Germany since 1985. She produces performance and theater works, acts as dramaturge and curator, and writes texts for the stage. Her long-term series, The Body Archive, is a collection of performance, gallery and stage compositions focusing on emotional body gestures; their iconography, their evolution through time and their role in contemporary western society.  2017 Annis expanded her practice to include sculptural formats, generating a palate of objects often concerning the human figure in expressive pose. The works are in paper, porcelain and bronze or as drawings, photographs and installations. She has also been engaged in an extended artistic cooperation with the artist Antonia Baehr in the form of a recurring dramaturgical exchange.
