Daniela Takeva lives and works in Leipzig, Germany
Daniela Takeva (*1990) was born in Bulgaria, but raised in North Germany. After her studies in Media Arts and Philosophy (B.A.+M.Ed., 2011-2017) in Kiel (DE), Prague (CZ) and Sofia (BG), she now works as a visual artist in Leipzig. Besides her artistic practice, she was involved in projects concerning visual arts education, curating and artistic research.
Daniela works in a variety of media with a highly conceptual approach. After a period of collecting and archiving visual, linguistic and acoustic material, she installs the various aspects to a visual narrative, which tries to investigate the duality that develops through different interpretations. Socialized in two different cultures, she deals in her artistic work with repetition and fake in her own and others memory.
