Christiane Obermayr

Christiane Obermayr works and lives in Cologne. After finishing studies in both dance and massage therapy, she studied fine arts, focusing mainly on performance art and film at the College of Fine Arts in Braunschweig. In 2002, she founded the performance group Ernst Sepia, which led her to do interdisciplinarywork with various artists until 2009. Since 2010, she has worked in different collectives and as a solo artist. Her work arises from everyday observations and objects that she presents in different contexts, and her actions gravitate around touch and connection to others, in a search for the essence of human togetherness, common everyday longing and ambivalence.
