MAJA RENN is a visual artist and performance maker based in Zürich, Switzerland.
Departing from the practice of participatory conscious dreaming, she interweaves movement, drawing, video and poetry into minimalist interventions, convertible settings and modular choreographies. In this way she creates visual and spacial narratives, that playfully underline, shift and erase boundaries, switch perspectives, and embody alternative symbiotic narratives.
Born in 1990 in Wrocław (PL), Maja Renn completed in 2013 the Informal Master Program at the Center of Contemporary Art in Tbilisi (GE) and obtained in 2016 her MA in Art Praxis at the Dutch Art Institute (NL). In 2014 she established an independent artist residence De Liceiras 18 in Porto (PT). In 2016 she settled in Zurich (CH) where she worked, among others, as a research assistant at the Institute for Art Education at the Zurich Academy of the Arts (2016 - 2019) and as assistant director at the Schauspielhaus (2019 - 2021) and participated in Professional Training in Contemporary Dance and Ballet at the Tanzhaus (2016 - today).
Her work has so far been performed and exhibited, among others, at the Galeria Ul in Gdańsk (PL), Šopa Gallery in Košice (SK), Casa do Povo in São Paulo (BR), Showroom in Arnheim (NL), Villa Arson in Nice (FR) and Spazju Kreattiv in Valletta (MT).
