Jasmin Schaitl is an inter-disciplinary artist, with a visual arts background, focused on live performance art. Interested in a site-specific approach in her researches, she generates installational environments and modifies the perception of the space through her actions during the performances. As she wrote her master thesis about representation of performance art, the remnants and outcomes of her performances are important aspects of her research and often culminate in installations.
In her durational works, she emphasizes the individual perception of time passing. Her work often contains sensual elements and haptic experiences. Instead of constructing narratives, she bases her actions on the simplicity of specific movements.
Currently, she is examining how durational pieces affect and change the perception of time. Through repetition and slow movements, both audience and performer achieve states of minds where time and one’s self can be observed and experienced at different paces.
Jasmin Schaitl has performed, exhibited, and facilitated art exchanges in Europe, Central America and Brazil.
