b.1995, Bergisch Gladbach, Germany 


Asselborn’s work explores thresholds, structures and mechanisms of our mental states through ideas around perception: explored often as visual phenomena, experiences, memory and stories. Being interested in the performative and sculptural element of photography, she experiments with these ideas as physical layers. Acts of delayering and re-layering, taken apart and re-connecting speak about the instability and desire for stability of ourselves and our surroundings and the ultimate goal to understand, cope, resolve and reassure. Coming from a neurodivergent perspective, Asselborn often moves between analogue and digital material and interprets looking as a physical performance of individuality and as an indicator of difference. 

The photographic frame as a physical entity presents itself as a space that can be paralysing and alienating. It discusses this space as psychological state ,reshaped and re-interpreted. Recently work has looked into what remains of unresolved trauma and memory and how fear and anxiety is processed,  looking into the Afterimage and the processing of the colour yellow as continuous visual tool in her work. Often materials that have a digital quality are used that express themselves through deprivation or saturation of colour.
