In her artistic practice, margarita wenzel delves into the subjectivity of knowledge, the ruptures present in historical narratives, and the intricate nature of human perception. Her approach isn’t confined to a particular medium but is committed to exploratory research.

Extensive investigations form a cornerstone of wenzel’s artistic endeavors, encompassing research conducted within cultural and scientific archives along with engaging in dialogues with contemporary witnesses. This exploration phase is succeeded by an intensive and interdisciplinary creative process, where various mediums like photography, sound, video, and drawing are given equal significance. Ultimately, these distinct works are interlinked to construct multi-layered narrative structures manifested in complex spatial installations or closely intertwined ensembles.
