Fiver is a German artist who is based in Johannesburg for half the year, while for the other half, she lives on a barge in the Netherlands.
In her art practice, Fiver works on the premise that every culture looks strange to someone, and that what we think is normal is entirely weird to someone else. This entails observing, unravelling, and processing the complexities of humanitarian issues. She is an activist and traveller who enjoys engaging with issues pertinent to the specific context in which she finds herself. Conscious that her own bias is ever present in this engagement, Fiver constantly challenges and adapts her own instinctive visual language. It is through this process of exchange and adjustment with various cultures, processes, and people that her work finds meaning.
