Cynthia Münster

29.11.16 02.12.16

Cynthia is an Argentinean-Canadian visual artist fascinated by storytelling and the human mind who uses both journalism and art to explore the subjects that call to her. She has been a political journalist and created installations that explored the political connotations and histories attached to everyday objects. Her current interest revolves around mental health and illness, what it feels like when the brain plays against it’s owner.

During her micro-Residency at ´ace, she worked on the fading and lack of permanence that characterises senile dementia through a photolithographic series titled Good.
