"Nothing is as it seems." This is Silvia Beck's formula for exploring invisible codes, particularly the function of art and artistic role models in late capitalism.
Being part of the system and trying to crack it's fixation simultaneously, Silvia Beck constructs double identities and invents new possibilities. Her narratives of undercover agents and super artists are blurring the boundaries between fiction and reality. Beck's work focuses on the structures and mechanisms of power systems in culture and society by using humor and reduced gravity as means of expression.
In both text and imagery she works with a variety of media - such as video, performance, sound and photography. Her interdisciplinary practice always engages with the exhibition space in the form of site specific configurations and arrangements.
Based in Berlin her work has been exhibited in numerous international solo and group exhibitions including the projects Global Loop (2000-2004), Komplex 200X (2006-2009), Superlabel (2011-2014), Golden Shot (2013-2014) and Secret Report to the Headquarters (work in progress).
