Flurina Casty (1988) graduated in 2015 from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Her bachelor thesis was nominated for the Thesis Award the same year.
The following three years she worked independently to develop her artistic practice, moving in between Switzerland and South Africa, where she collaborated on various projects with local artists and collectives, such as 'Buyaphi University'and 'Trackside Creative'.
In 2016 she collaborated with soprano Nora Bertogg for a performance, which was selected for the annual winter exhibition at the Grison Art Museum organised by 'Visarte Graubünden' for their 80th anniversary.
In 2017 she organized an exhibition at the Stadtgalerie in Chur entitled “Values of Deconstruction” to give insight into her development and practice. The same year she collaborated with fellow alumni Kristian M. Meyer (DK), Lotte van der Woude (NL) and Eline Tsvetkova (NL/BU) forming an artist collective. Together they curated a show in Copenhagen in 2018 at the project space UNDERBANEN.
In the fall of 2018 she began the master programme 'Contemporary Art Practice' in Bern aiming to further develop her skills as a performer and writer. In 2019 she performed her piece 'Flow' at the 'ACT Performance Festival' in Geneva, Zürich and Basel, 'Kulturfolger' Gallery Zürich , '(ort)' Raum für Performance in Emmenbrücke and the performance festival 'Excentricités' in Besançon in France.
