Isolde Kille is a multi-media artist who has developed a rich and varied practice that incorporates aspects of painting, photography, sculpture and video. Her installations bring together diverse materials, forms and often video projections to immerse the viewers in an imaginative and dreamlike atmosphere. Her focus is to describe an awareness between the existing conditions and a fictional environment.
Born in Welver, Germany, Isolde Kille studied visual communication, film and painting at the art academies in Düsseldorf, Berlin and Dresden in Germany, receiving her master’s degree (Meisterschüler) in fine arts at the University of Arts in Berlin, Germany. As a graduate student, Kille was involved in several independent art initiatives, gaining her the attention of the international art community and inspired her to move to New York City in 1998. Her work has been shown national and internationally at venues such as: Kunstwerke and Kunsthaus Bethanien in Berlin, Germany; John Gibson Gallery, John Weber Gallery, Mehr Gallery, Chelsea, New York, NY; Bass Museum, Miami Beach, Florida, among others.
Since 2012 Isolde Kille lives and works in Santa Fe County, New Mexico, USA. In her installation ‘Utopia X-posed’ at The High Line in Chelsea, New York, she transferred her natural world experiences into an urban setting. Her new installation will be presented during Santa Fe Art Tours as digital studio visit 22. July, 2021.
