Pandora Graessl (FR, CH) is a multidisciplinary artist and photographer based in Mexico City. Inspired by the desire to understand our journey on Earth, her practice explores the relationship between human mind-bodies and the Natural dimension. A nomadic life and an insatiable curiosity for the planet has fostered her global creative vision . Drawing from a plurality of references, a deep interest in ancestral religions and the powerful realm of dreams & spirits.
After working as a creative producer and collaborating, among others, with Bureau Betak and Management Artists, Graessl founded her own creative Studio in 2015. With Graessl Studio, she built a versatile portfolio ranging from production to consulting, set design, curation, happenings and installations. She has collaborated with brands such as Dior, Helmut Lang, Hood by Air, Saint-Laurent or Camper; photo- and videographers such as Daniel Sannwald, Johnny Dufort, Gaspar Noé and Larry Clark; institutions such as the Centre Pompidou; and publications such as Dust Magazine, Dazed, Vogues or M le Monde.
Saturated with color, sound and light, and driven by a deep sense of community, Graessl’s work makes a experiential use of medias such as photography, video and installation to open a fascinated conversation with the world. She leaves the viewers with a sense of wonder and respect for their natural surroundings in both empowering and intimidating ways.
As part of the collective In Co Lab and initiator of the event series Kaliante, she curated and participared in a series of collective experiences ranging from performative meals or ceremonies to parties for both commercial and cultural partners.
