Lucie Sahner

*1986 in Völklingen (DE),
lives in Amsterdam (NL).



Lucie Sahner is an artist who also works as a nurse. She completed her fine art studies as a Meisterschülerin (master student) with Prof. Gabriele Langendorf at the Hochschule der Bildenden Künste Saarbrücken. She then earned a master’s degree in the Dirty Art Department at the Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam. In her works, Sahner explores processes of transformation and change within the human body, but from a pivotal non-human-centric worldview. Sahner plays with both an expansion and detachment from bodily boundaries and limitations in her sculptures, installations, and prose, often employing natural materials with corporeal connotations such as gelatine, wax, cream, and latex.
