Artist Statement

The theme of my work in progress is the impact of borders and ultimate control in places which are designed to create a parallel world. These sceneries are artificial settings and constructions which create conflicts within our everyday life. Borders and control of areas which are excesses examples for staging, an imitation of the reality, as well as the imitation of natural structures, especially in still lifes are essential aspects of my recent artwork. The issue is to create a photographic, mixed media installation which brings a new perspective about universal themes such as control, staging, surveillance, and value. The images of this series and their presentation form quote the complexity and diversity of photography as a media.

Artist Bio

Pia Kintrup is an emerging young artist from Germany. She was born in 1988 in North Rhine-Westphalia / Germany.  She studied photography and graduated with an MFA in 2017. In her work, she’s highly interested in still life, materiality, and surface character. Transformational processes, value, emptiness and abundance, and photographic steps of transition are essential for her artwork. Pia Kintrup uses the medium of photography to transform the three- into the two dimensional and therefore to fix a particular perspective. Besides her groundwork in photography, she’s working with installations and sculptures as well. In her three dimensional work, she’s working with the contradictory relation of man and object, surface, materiality, and artificial structures. Her entire work is based on staging, and an imitation of the reality, as well as the imitation of natural structures. These themes are essential aspects of Kintrup´s recent artwork.
