1 June – 15 August 2017
Wagehe Raufi lives and works in Offenbach am Main. She has been studying fine art at the University of Art and Design in Offenbach am Main since 2011. She focuses in her work on the changeability and forming processes of materials such as water retention granulate and agar-agar. In doing so, ongoing cycles in changeable materials serve as a conceptual point of departure for the confluence of materials. The processes of the creation and dissolution of materialities take centre stage.
Wagehe Raufi is one of the prize-winners of the SYN Award | sms of the SYN Stiftung | Kunst Design Wissenschaft in Halle and therefore the recipient of one of two research residencies at the Bauhaus Dessau. Here, she will contribute her artistic, experimental approaches to the discourse of the exhibition smart materials satellites. Material as Experiment.
Wagehe Raufi's residency is a Shared Residency with the SYN Stiftung Halle.
