Amy J. Klement CV
Amy J. Klement was born in New Jersey in 1968. Her early passion for languages, led her to study Arabic and Arab Studies at Georgetown University, from which she graduated in 1989.
After living in Egypt for a couple of years street photography , she went to New York City in the early 90s to follow her other passions: photography and costume design which subsequently led her to the use of wire as a medium.
Since moving to Berlin in 1997, her work has evolved to include performance, sculpture, video and spoken word. In it, she poses questions about the significance and symbolism of shells, myths, numbers and mathematics with often ironic and/or feminist undertones. She also explores the practice of patience and handwork through her crochet interventions in public spaces.
The following selected works provide an overview of how she has brought these various threads together in recent years:
