Annika Kappner

Annika Kappner (b. Berlin, 1980) is an Amsterdam-based visual artist and researcher. Within the expanded field of painting, Kappner creates sensory scenographies that combine landscape, installation, performance, guided meditation, scent and sound to generate glitches in perception.

Kappner’s multidisciplinary practice explores the interconnected evolution of consciousness and archetypal imagery, as well as its reflection on the shifting perception of (self) image and The Other. The artist’s research approach is participatory and collaborative, intertwining rational analysis and her own background in finance with embodied experience and intuition.

Her work layers experiential perspectives unto the relationship between human, nature and technology, and addresses concepts of non-duality and otherness, to encourage the emancipation of our way of sensing our surroundings.

Kappner’s ongoing and ever-evolving research project Deep Planetary Sensing has been in development since 2019. She is a co-founder of the artist collective Elephants & Volcanoes. Selected exhibitions include: Bienal Internacional de Arte Amaz6nico (PE), Het Nieuwe lnstituut (NL), IMPAKT {NL}, Julidans (NL), Marres House for Contemporary Art Maastricht (NL), MBOT, St. Louis (US), National Museum of Natural History, Menton (FR) and Rush Arts Gallery, New York (US).
