MARIE ALICE BRANDNER-WOLFSZAHN is a filmmaker & installation artist from Vienna. Time, Vanitas and Death but also questioning Reality and contemplating Existence are recurring themes in her work.
After graduating in film at the Edinburgh College of Art in Scotland & the École Internationale de Création Audiovisuelle et de Réalisation in Paris, she moved to Berlin focusing on music videos, experimental dance films and shorts. Later, back in Austria, she took classes at the Universität für Angewandte Kunst in Vienna & at the Salzburger Sommerakademie to delve into her growing interest in sculpture and installation art.
In the past years she has been working within the fields of advertising, fashion & reportage, participated in art exhibitions and created several stage designs in Moscow.
Taking every opportunity to explore this planet her projects keep escorting her to distant regions - an obvious love for barren landscapes, architecture & decay is portrayed in her photography.
Currently she is shooting her first feature length documentary film SOVIETOPIA.
