Ayumi Paul is a composer and performance artist based in Berlin and Paris. Her work combines site specific concert, composition, performance, and installation. The intrinsic sound of body, material, and the surroundings is essential to her conceptual approach to creating highly sensitive and often durational performances which expand the possibilities of listening.
She trained as a classical violinist at Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin and Indiana University and gave her solo debut at the Berlin Philharmonic Hall in 2003 from where she continued to perform at the world’s most sought after concert halls while at the same time developing her own distinct approach to music. In recent years she became more widely known in the visual and performative art context. Her work has been presented at Kunsthalle Osnabrück (2016), Esther Schipper (2017), National Gallery Singapore (2018), and Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac Paris (2018).
