M. Kardinal is a visual artist based in Greifswald DE working with photography, moving images and performances. Driven by a long experience with experimental photography and her preference for analog working methods she extended her work process with obsolete video technique, circuit bent machines and toy cameras.

Since 2004, she has participated regularly in solo and group exhibitions; also, her work has been internationally exhibited, screened, performed live and discussed across Europe, North and South America, and New Zealand. In September 2015 her work got honored by the President of the Federal Republic of Germany. In October 2015 she received the Caspar-David-Friedrich scholarship from the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture DE. Since 2016 she intensified various collaborations with musicians and sound artists from Galicia (Spain), Germany, Italy, Ukraine, Canada and the United States developing audio-visual performances and moving images.

Her works are in the SØR Rusche collection Oelde/Berlin DE. M. Kardinal lives and works as a freelance artist and photographer between Greifswald and Berlin (DE).
