Amanda Vesthardt (DK) brings to the table a unique perspective on costuming the space, creating universes of light, music, texture and colour that are as at home on the body as surrounding it. As a artist Amanda work across multiple disciplines from their origins in fashion and costume to performance, ceramics, installation art and all possible fibre crafts.

Amanda is currently based in Berlin as a part of the Fresh A.I.R. Residency, Funded by Stiftung Berliner Leben. The residency is for 12 month and will focus on textile installations and reused materials and will be exhibithed at Urban Nation Gallery in November 2024.
