IKU

Johanna Odersky a.k.a IKU is a Frankfurt-based artist whose interests and music is circulated around the aesthetic form of recursion. Currently studying Fine Arts at Städelschule, she uses this approach as a loose structure for creating, as well as erasing, mood and meaning. Recontextualization and self-reference are used to bring to mind different time frames and an alternative space to our linear histories and understanding of being.
