Sinta Werner’s art plays with the relationship between two- and three-dimensionality, reality and reproduction, physical presence and projection, and the interconnection of virtual and real space. In her photo-collages, installations, and sculptures, she uses the doubling of physical reality that results from illusory spaces or mirrors to produce confusion and deceive the eye. In her work, she occupies herself with the geometric rationalism of the functionally characterized architecture of modernism. This monograph is the first extensive publication on the work of Sinta Werner.

Her work has been shown at the Marta Herford Museum, the Marrakech Biennale (Marrakech) at the MOCAK Museum of Contemporary Art (Krakow) and the Berlinische Galerie, among others. Selected solo exhibitions have been held at Match Gallery (Ljubljana) and at the galleries alexander levy (Berlin), COMA (Berlin), Nettie Horn (London) and Christinger de Mayo (Zurich), among others. She has received numerous awards and residency grants, including an artist-in-residence fellowship at Museumsquartier Vienna and Meetfactory (Prague) and a postgraduate fellowship from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). In 2022 she is a fellow of the Kunstfonds Bonn (working scholarship).

Project info

During my fellowship stay, I would like to engage in reading about art theory. In the literature list are among others Martina Dobbe - Photography as a Theoretical Object, Elizabeth Grosz - Architecture from the Outside and Anne Friedberg - The Virtual Window. In addition, I would like to prepare my exhibition in the Eikon showroom, which opens on September 1, 2022. For this I will take architectural photographs from Vienna as a starting point and develop a new photo installation from them. I see the stay in Vienna as a chance to open the view beyond the usual environment and everyday routine and to allow new, experimental possibilities in the work practice.
