Meet the Artist // Elinor Sahm

Elinor Sahm is a multidisciplinary artist focused on site-specific installations. In addition to being site-specific, Elinor’s exhibitions are audience-dependent and single-viewer-dependent: the installations are accompanied by performances and the artist’s presence in space, which create an overall system that wraps and immerses viewers within the work, making them an integral part of it, making a one-off connection between her and them.

For her project in GlogauAIR Elinor worked from her own contrasted identity, taking as anchor point the stories behind her German part of the family; in particular her great grandfather who was Mayor of the City of Berlin from 1931 and 1935, and her other great grandfather, a Jewish man and a very present figure in her childhood and family memories.
