Linda Jasmin Mayer (b. 1986 in Meran, Italy) 

Her work develops predominantly through mediums of video art and installation, often with sculptural and participatory aspects. She explores topics of social alienation and the interplay between humanity and nature.
In her current project she investigates the metamorphosis (or hybridisation) of human and bird and aims to show how the loss of belonging forces the hybrid creature to look for new points of reference and to review its purpose.

She received a MFA from the Time and Space Arts study programme of the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki in 2014 and a BFA in Sculpture Studies from the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera, Milan in 2010. She studied at the School of Media Arts of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen in 2014 and 2015. In 2018 she participated in the ISP of Maumaus in Lisbon. Currently she is a resident of the Practice-based Research in Visual Arts programme of HISK in Gent.

Linda Jasmin Mayer’s work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions in Italy, Spain, Finland, Denmark, Austria, Germany, Bulgaria, Belgium, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Russia and India.
Her graduation work How to Break the Ice received the Kuvataideakatemian Ystävät prize in 2013. Her video work Snowcats has been screened at the Trento Film Festival in 2014 in a screening curated by MART/Italy. In 2016 she participated at the Colombo Art Biennale in Sri Lanka. In 2018 her film Parallel Worlds was screened at the 35. Kasseler Dokumentar und Video Fest. In 2020 she participated with her work Dove fermarsi? at the exhibition unlearning categories at the Museum of Modern Art – Museion in Bolzano. Her works are in private and public collections.
