Kirsten Pieroth

Born 1979, Germany. Lives and works in Berlin.

In her conceptual art works, artist Kirsten Pieroth focuses on the possibilities of everyday objects.

By combining various objects, she uncovers unexpected meanings and associations which convey new narratives. This can be seen in works such as the safe where the key is locked inside, the criminal novel with a dead ant on top, or in Detective Story where two different Braille books have identical cover so the spectator is unable to tell the books apart. By these playful conceptual arrangements, Pieroth’s works are filled with humour and poetic reflections of everyday objects.
