After the International Post-graduate degree from Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts in Paris (E.N.S.B.A.) and the Diplôme Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Paris (E.N.S.B.A.), in multimedia directed by Christian Boltanski, since the early 2000s, Angelika Markul has been building up a body of dark and powerful work, mapping out humanity all the way to its furthest reaches. Time, memory, man and nature are so many guiding principles for the artist who focuses particularly on unusual and desolate landscapes. Her practice shifts between video, sculpture and installation, directing a gaze at once poetic and aesthetic on perilous or contentious situations. Not afraid to shoot her films in locations where death has struck or where danger still threatens (Fukushima, Chernobyl, Bagdad, etc.), she brings together in her films current images of natural or man-made disasters with immemorial questions.
