About

Ingrid Koenig is a Vancouver-based artist and Associate Professor at Emily Carr University of Art + Design. Her practice has focused on a spectrum of engagements with the field of theoretical physics – through visual art, collaborations and relational events – to investigate how the narrative of science enters the human story and becomes materially transformed through art. Koenig is Artist in Residence (until 2018) at TRIUMF, Canada’s National Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics, co-organizing relational art projects with Berlin artist collaborators and physicists. In her current studio practice Koenig employs strategies of substitution, performative scientific modeling, and the process of drawing to entangle the forces in quantum physics with human experience. She has exhibited her work in public galleries across Canada, in Europe and New Zealand. Her pedagogical designs involve courses that intersect science, humanities and visual art. She has presented this research-based practice through conferences and artist talks in Germany and the U.S.
