Svea Duwe lives as a freelance artist in Dresden. As a sculptress, her artistic focus is on installations, performative video work, stagings and sculptural movements in the public area. Svea Duwe studied sculpture at the Academy for Art and Society in Alfter near Bonn and free art at the Academy of Fine Art Dresden and at the State Art Academy Oslo, Norway. She graduated in 2006 from the HfbK Dresden with a degree and was there as a master student of Monika Brandmeier until 2008. Svea Duwe is interested in conflicting, contradictory aspects of our daily lives. With this substantive focus she seeks artistic forms of expression which generate an area of tension resulting from new interaction between space, material, action and observer and then maintain it. Svea Duwe collaborates with the theatre and dance scene and develops video installations for stage plays.
Besides working in her studio and the arrangement of exhibitions, Svea Duwe works as a lecturer.
She is a member of the art commission for art in urban space of the state capital of Dresden.
