Christiane Feser

Germany, Frankfurt am Main Galerie Anita Beckers

In a very literal sense, Christiane Feser (b. 1997, Germany) has identified new facets to the question of what we actually see in a photograph. Her compelling works transcend the traditional two-dimensional approach and construct a three-dimensional layer that re-thinks the medium. Her images are not abstract, but rather portray something that represents abstraction, as nothing is really being represented because, while something built in reality forms the departure point, it never existed in that form - what we see only “exists” in the picture. In 2006, Feser graduated from the Hochschule für Gestaltung, Offenbach. Two years later she received the Moldau Scholarship of the Hessisches Ministerium für Wissenschaft und Kunst and in 2014, the Cité Internationale des Arts Scholarship from land Hessen. This year she has been awarded the 1822 Prize from the Frankfurter Sparkasse. Her works have been exhibited in several institutions, including Palazzo Strozzi, Florence; Stadtgalerie, Saarbrücken; Museum für Konkrete Kunst, Ingolstadt und Kunstmuseum Bochum. Her photographs can also be seen in the following public collections: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the DZ Bank Kunstsammlung, Frankfurt; Mönchehaus Museum, Goslar and the ZKM, Karlsruhe.
