inbetween.

Between documentation and narrative fiction one can find Sissa Micheli`s position as an artist and photographer. Micheli studied at Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, starting in classes of Franz Graf, later Gunther Damisch, then changing to photography class of Matthias Hermann, where she graduated with the following work in 2007.

In her very early work Sisa Micheli portraied herself while playing parts like e.g. `the alcoholic`, always using a narrative background. Later she took themes out of newspapers as a topic for series. The series shown above is based on an article, telling story of a woman burned to death in her flat. Fire was caused by a cigarette`s butt. For me, Sissa Micheli amazingly manipulates the viewers position. The perspective shows vulnerability of the woman who does not recognize in any way she`s beeing observed. Between documentation and narrative fiction, she`s flowing confident inbetween.

Sissa Micheli was invited to `Portrait`a series of lectures at Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna. Upcoming artists are
