Lilian Kroth studied Philosophy (BA, MA) at the University Vienna and and Drawing at the University of Fine Arts (Veronika Dirnhofer).
In her artistic practice, she works with painting, drawing and the performative aspects that create imagery. Lines as matter, as spatial between abstraction and the bodily, between two and three dimensions, between relation and division drive her attention. The experiences as a performer and actress (e.g. with Paulus Manker) feed into her painting and drawing practice, as traces of gestures and manifestations of actions. (artist-in-residency program of BASE// in Tamil Nadu, India 2018, WE COULD ALSO BE SILENT with Elisabeth Wildling and Veronika Mayer 2018, WHISK with Stefanie Hintersteiner 2019, BAU2-6).
Her PhD project at the University of Cambridge engages with ontologies of the limit in relation to economic and ecological theory in contemporary French philosophy. Her work is interested in the relation of geopolitical, ontological, time-spatial and bodily limits and how they affect, constitute and fictionalise each other.
