Lives & Works in London and Düsseldorf
Theresa Weber is an artist working 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.
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. She completed an MA in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art, London and her work has most recently featured in ‘Studio Response [#3]’, Saatchi Gallery, London (2022/23) and Bloomberg New Contemporaries, South London Gallery (2022).
Theresa Weber will be presented by DADA Gallery
