Darya von Berner


Darya von Berner’s work is dedicated to installations and performances in the public space as well as the opera. She understands the art world as not isolated from other life systems and tries to conceive a new space with her works, in which the spectator and the art work are not separate from each other, but mutually permeate each other like a single living organism.
