Rike Scheffler is a writer and artist, creating work at the intersection of language, music and performance across media and art forms. Her work varies from publishing poetic pieces in journals and anthologies, performance-oriented, often sound-driven shows to spacial sound installations. As a live performer she uses her voice as an instrument along with effect pedals, loop stations and synthesizers to layer dark and warm poem-like songs.
Scheffler has received various scholarships in Europe and has published, toured and performed in countries like Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ethiopia, Germany, Switzerland and the USA. She frequently collaborates with other artists such as sound virtuoso Claudio Puntin and Ólafur Elíasson's Institute for Spacial Experiments http://raumexperimente.net/de/participant/rike-scheffler/
Her poetry collection “der rest ist resonanz" (kookbooks, 2014) won the Orphil Debut Prize for political and avant-garde writing.
Recent work include a three-part poetry intervention called "words that hurt" at the Neue Nationalgalerie Berlin, the imaginative exhibition “your exhibition" at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art and performances at the "Festival of Future Nows" at Hamburger Bahnhof Berlin.
