Amanda Assaley

Amanda Assaley lives and works in Frankfurt am Main, DE. She studies at Städelschule in the class of Hassan Khan, having previously studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Yale Norfolk School of Art.

In her work Assaley articulates images, objects, film and video through a sculptural language, asking questions such as how the vernacular may upset power dynamics and address ongoing experiences of violence and decomposition. Her works arrive by way of restless formal processes of desire, leverage, and mutation as these interlace with the production of political realities. In centering method to produce and engage subject matter, Assaley’s works function as exercises in, or conduits for, struggle.
