About:

Valentina Schandl, born in 1995, lives and works in Vienna. As a photographer, she focuses on the female body and does not want to leave the narrative of femininity to men alone. It is important to her to break with the staging of the woman as a passive object and the role of the man as an active viewer and to make nude photographs of women accessible to both sexes. Her photographs show the contrast between the softness and strength of a woman and combine them in one picture. Aesthetics and taboo are two main focuses that always come together in her work. The works are very direct. By masking or leaving out the face, the body becomes an independent entity that prompts the viewer to deal with the role of the female body. Her sometimes provocative works always have the task of starting valuable discourses and breaking taboos on sexuality. In 2016 she started with the medium of photography and moved to Rio de Janeiro, where she developed her first photo series. In 2019 she completed her diploma in photography at the Graphische Wien. Since then her works are shown at international exhibitions and auctions.  She studies art history at the University of Vienna and curates alongside her artistic work.
