Theresa Weber (1996, DE) lives and works in London and Düsseldorf. She often works with large-scale installations and image-making, in which she contributes her biography linked to current social discourses and based on historical or mythological storytelling. Weber is currently studying Sculpture (MA) at the Royal College of Art in London, after graduating from Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, Germany, master’s student title from Ellen Gallagher, and studying with her and Katharina Grosse.

Her work has been shown among others at Dortmunder Kunstverein, Ludwig Forum Aachen, Moltkerei Werkstatt, and Philara Collection in Germany, as well as in Italy, Slovakia, and Colombia. As her family background stretches out to Jamaica, London, Canada, and Greece, her pluralistic perspective is represented in her practice, while journeys to Jamaica have an important impact on her work. She makes her concepts accessible by using resin and silicone, to arrange collage-like assembled materials. Composed hairpieces, fake nails, pearls, prints, drawings, body casts, and other things become topographical archival material that tells stories – of belonging, intersectionality, ideals of beauty, feminism, gender, and cultural hybridization. Fluid material such as translucent resin with colored pigments is directly related to the procedural character of the fluidity in identity formation.
