1977 · Germany
From smaller-scale collages to full-room installations, German artist Sinta Werner thrives upon the illusion of three-dimensional space.
Moving between her works means seemingly moving between realities, as each toys with the viewer’s expectations and perceptions of space. Underpinning each work is an uncanny passion for the precision of geometry, and it is the very order that helps her audience make sense of her delightfully confounding compositional space.
Born in Hattingen, Germany, in 1977, Werner grew up in Karlsruhe. Between 1999 and 2001 she studied at Kunsthochschule, Berlin-Weißensee and then continued her training at HdK Berlin until 2004. The capstone of her educational career was the receipt of her MFA from Goldsmiths College in London in 2007, after which point she returned to Germany where she is now based. In addition to numerous grants and residencies to her name, including her past participation in the artist in residency program at Gut Siggen by Alfred Töpfer Stiftung (2010), Werner has also been a frequent exhibitor of her work. Recent showcases include “The No Make Up Look” at Import Projects in Berlin (2017); “Schwingungen eines Kontinuums” at Berlin Weekly in Berlin (2018); and “Somewhere or Other” at Match Gallery in Ljubljana (2019).
