Melissa E. Logan  (US/DE) is an interdisciplinary artist living in Cologne who works in performance, installation, painting, pop music, sound and new media. Logan’s approach to her work is proactive, initiating collaborations between artists, theaters, media institutions, instigating cross-pollination between fields. The subject matter is informed by a questioning and critical approach to social structures such as gender roles, national identity and ecology while utilizing painting, apps, found fabrics or thermal photography. Her work has a strong connection to the human as chimera, humanoid animals, reference points span prehistory and concepts of a distant future simultaneously. It embraces a bright palette and includes sign language, visual communication and pop elements and graphic design. The seemingly sweet sound and imagery is the playful veneer overlaying themes of the human angst in a ricochet between utopia and dystopia.

Melissa E. Logan is represented by Galerie Gisela Clement, Bonn. As Chicks on Speed, represented by Galerie Milani, Brisbane Australia and 401contemporary, Berlin. Logan founded University of Craft Action Thought, a company to produce performances, release music and to host symposiums.
