CV

„All through my life I have been seeking to transcend my body and mind through all sorts of experiences – physically, intellectually, ritually.
An almost innate discipline paired with an obsessive nature fuels this search to this day into my artistic practice. To go deeper is to experience new things, is to learn new ways to share the experience with others.
Therefore my artistic practice is both insular and communioning, both of the soul and the flesh.“

Born in 1979, Thomas Sing studied literature and philosophy and taught at university for 3 years before leaving academia for the arts. He lives and works between Germany, Italy and Paris.
