WeegeeWeegee (aka Ariane Severin) was born in Frankfurt/Main. She studied fine art, art history and has a MA in Photography (University of Arts, London), and worked in art galleries, museums and film in Venice, Paris and London. 2014 was a turning point when Ariane went through an artistic transformation, and started working with photography based collage – a process that included changing the artist name to WeegeeWeegee. Her surreal psycho-geographic art work is often exhibited in unusual locations: ‘Souls of the Unrepentant’ in a Victorian underground men’s toilet in London; ‘The Virgins of Palermo’ in the 16th century stucco masterpiece Oratorio di San Lorenzo; ‘The Joys of Eros’  in a notorious nightclub in Frankfurt’s red light district. Most recently she exhibitied 'Sailors Adrift' in the Old Thermal Baths of Nisyros.

 

WeegeeWeegee is based between Nisyros and Frankfurt.

 

 

 

 

Due to the Coronovirus WW's upcoming Solo Exhibition at

'Consonanita' in Mexico City in May 2020 had to be postponed

until further notice.
