About

Vanessa Puschmann(*1978 in Bavaria) is a Bremen based artist. She is focused on body/corporeality, identity, spirituality and social themes. She searches for the connection between nature and human beings.

She works as a solo artist and also in collaboration projects.
To illustrate her questions she uses a mixture of different disciplines. So you can find paintings,photography, drawings and texts. Vanessa also uses the medium of theatre, performance and dance connected with textile art and fashion. She is looking for the stories in clothes and uses textiles to create new things.
For her quest she also uses her knowledge and know-how which she gained through her cultural and religious studies (Magister, University of Bremen), her education as a dressmaker and her theatre experiences.
So she has many tools, different ways and numerous points of view to find answers.
