Lucie Sahner

*1986 in Völklingen (DE),

lives in Amsterdam (NL).


Lucie Sahner completed her fine art studies as a Meisterschülerin with Prof. Gabriele Langendorf at Hochschule der Bildenden Künste Saarbrücken. She then completed a master's degree at the Dirty Art Department of Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam.

Lucie Sahner's artistic work addresses the human body: What is a body? What differentiates it from others? What forces act on it? A sociological perspective of her approach examines the inscription of the environment on the body. Another focus of her practice is the material, as evidenced by experiments in wax and gelatin.
