Taking quotidian surroundings such as architecture, urban design or fashion as departure, Christiane Blattmann's sculptural practice aims to dissolve clear disciplines of creation and challenges the autonomy of those fields. Her works are less hybrids of art and vernacular, but more thinking-figures designated as art-objects, claiming rights and questioning hierarchies in our environments. Blattmann (inter-)weaves, ties, nets, connects. She creates convoluted joints of things, relations and characters. Her objects elude themselves of normative definitions - dissolving appears as aesthetic strategy.
Christiane Blattmann graduated from Hochschule für Bildende Künste Hamburg in 2013. She has recently exhibited at Neuer Essener Kunstverein, The Community (Paris), Kunsthaus Hamburg, Damien & The Love Guru (Brussels), Oracle (Berlin), Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof, and run a radio station at MoMA PS1, New York. She is part of the artist lead publisher Montez Press. In spring 2019 her institutional solo show UnBreak my Walls opened at Kunsthalle Münster.
