Ayumi Paul is a Berlin-based artist, who works with composition and performance, paper, textile, film, and installation. The resonance between mind and matter and the interdependency of all phenomena are essential to her practice, which is dedicated to listening and engaging the nonlinear texture of life. By mapping biographical nodes within the innate rhythms of the collective whole, her projects explore and foster relationship beyond current human-made conditionings.
She began playing the violin at age 5 and trained as a classical violinist at Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin and Indiana University. During her active career as a violinist, throughout which she played concerts at many of the world´s most sought after concert halls, she also collaborated with an extensive range of artists from the experimental music and dance scene and continued her studies in the fields of somatics, science and ancient knowledge.
In recent years she has become more widely known in the visual and performative art context. Her work was presented at Blockhouse Gallery Tokyo (2015), Kunsthalle Osnabrück (2016), in collaboration with Ari Benjamin Meyers at Esther Schipper (2017), National Gallery Singapore (2018), and Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac Paris (2018).
In 2020 her first institutional solo exhibition SYMPATHETIC RESONANCE was presented at Kunsthalle Osnabrück. She was awarded with a fellowship stipend of the German Academy Villa Massimo in Rome for January/February 2021, which she closed with a solo exhibition at the gallery of Villa Massimo in May 2021.
Composing and playing the violin remain vital to her. Latest projects include a commission by Philharmonie de Paris in 2020 of her installative composition and performance WE ARE WE.
