Ella Fengler

1999, Amsterdam

I am an artist based in Amsterdam who portrays stories in video, textiles, and print. My work stems from a deep interest in how humans and different world cultures manifest themselves in objects, poetic language, music, dance, and rituals. The expressions of identity that I research and create have mythical connotations and seek a connection to nature.
I use raw materials such as chalk, clay, or the body in my working process to create worlds in which different media can merge. These worlds reveal sensitive perspectives. Details of small-scale stories that hint at bigger ones.
