Anike Joyce Sadiq explores the relationships between the legacy of relational aesthetics and post-colonial theory through video, photography and performance. Sadiq's intermedial spaces create realities and stagings at the same time and thus give rise to a new questioning of concepts of authorship, authenticity, communication and identity. Crossing the roles of artist, visitor and social reality and making them available, Sadiq orchestrates situations that can generate experiences of participation and interaction as well as alienation and exclusion.
Sadiq took part in various exhibition projects at home and abroad. She was a fellow at the Villa Romana (2015), the Kunststifung Baden-Württemberg (2018) and the Cité Internationale des Arts Paris (2018) and she was represented at the Dak'Art Biennale (2018) and the Strasbourg Biennale (2018). She received the sponsorship award from the Baden-Württemberg Artists' Association in 2018 and was the recpient of the inaugural Kunststiftung Rainer Wild sponsorship award in 2020. The artist studied at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart, where she taught a class during the kick-off symposium for the new master's program "Body, Theory and Poetics of the Performative" in 2019. The artist lives and works in Berlin.
