Siberian Marble // Performance

Part of performance series Thought Sculptures


Andi Schmied, while pretending to be a Hungarian billionaire hunting for a luxury apartment, got excess to over 30 of the most exclusive condos of Manhattan. In her lecture-performance she will guide us around these penthouses, show the sunset from Trump World Tower, the views from the tallest apartment building on the planet, and samples of the most luxurious materials used in bathtubs overlooking the Statue of Liberty.
Andi Schmied (1986) is an artist based in Budapest. With her installations and photographs she meticulously explores architectural anomalies; places that for one reason or another do not follow conventional urban logic - yet they are part of our cityscapes. These vary from urban areas that went far from their original function to unfulfilled dead ends of urban planning or utopian architectures. She had studied at The Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London, and at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona. In 2015 she has granted Pécsi József Photography Grant. She has participated at various residency-programs, for example at Triangle Arts Association, New York, USA at Residency at S-AIR, Curators Network, Sapporo, Japan and at dortdYart, Dordrecht, NL.
