ABOUT



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.
