In her artistic practice, Swiss media artist Katrin Niedermeier often addresses the area of humanly constructed dream spaces, of fictitious or real nature and examines how they manifest themselves in the form of “arcadian” gardens, virtual landscapes, avatars, or personal fantasies.
In her latest works, she illuminates in particular the female, mostly exualized body in the virtual world and shows the constantly changing relationships between virtual and analog spaces. In their implementation and development, their work moves exactly at the border of these two areas. In many cases, digital formats, mostly animations, are the starting points of her works, which she then translates into installations, physical objects and paintings and lets them enter into dialogue with each other. Here, the virtual world, as an entity with its own authorship, is questioned and its potential and their effectiveness in both analogue and digital.
Before completing her master’s degree at the Institut Kunst HGK FHNW, Katrin Niedermeier studied fashion design at Esmod in Munich and Oslo and worked as a designer for Christian Dior and Jeanne Lanvin in Paris and Nicky Hilton in Los Angeles, among others.
