Maria Ã…ngerman is a Finnish artist based in Berlin, Germany and Vaasa, Finland. Her educational background is in Fine Arts studies at Nykarleby Polytechnic of Applied Sciences, Art Science at Stockholm University as well as in Film studies at Netherlands Film Academy in Amsterdam. Previously she worked several years in Barcelona, where she exhibited extensively. Her work has also been shown in Brazil, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland and Turkey. Her films concerns displacement, belonging and the tension of intimacy in public space. Her artistic strategies are organic and relational, and their processual approach is guided by an intuitive sense, taking into consideration circumstance and external participation. The editing process becomes a way to define the grammar in the material, to create connections between different storylines. Hence the work is a continuous creative process of discovering the film, a venture where risk is always present.
