About the art practice | Titania Seidl
Titania Seidl works in the field of painting and her topic focus is concerned with the construction of the female self and the narrative strategies that feed into this construction.
An avid reader of all kinds of fiction, Seidl is interested in both the auctorial voice (How do male narrators describe female characters?
How do female authors describe their characters?) and the corruption of that voice by appropriative techniques (the re-writing happening in the translation of texts into different languages, e.g.).
She then translates these concerns into paintings, a medium that's still emblematic for a certain image of male genius, yet also accessible to a non-specialist audience.
Seidl uses images from different sources - art history, subculture, comics, self-help literature, her own sketches - and tries to unbalance the hierarchies between these different sources, using the canvas as a unifier.
Co-founder of art space MAUVE together with Lukas Thaler. Titania also works as assistant in the class of painting and animation at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna.
