Christiane Peschek is the Guest Studio holder for August 2018

Christiane Peschek works with codes of intimacy and their transformations within photography. She experiments with her personal photographic archive searching for additional values of photography and how they relate to our physical and emotional memory. Seeing photography as a temporary fragment of a constructed reality she extracts the image’s contents from its eternal statement to create transformations with hybrid contexts of perception, expanding visuality towards fragrance and text. Her works have been shown in several solo and group exhibition all around Europe. Latest shows including: Salzburger Kunstverein, Benaki Museum Athens, Fotogalerie Wien, Photon Gallery Vienna, European Month of Photography Vienna, Varfok Gallery Budapest, A ILHA Lisbon, FOTOHOF Salzburg, Museum of Applied Arts Vienna as well as exhibitions on several Festivals such as ENCONTROS DA IMAGEM, ATHENS PHOTOFESTIVAL, PHOTO IRELAND, Triennale of Photography Hamburg.


Christiane Peschek was selected for several prizes such as: START-Stipendium for artistic Photography by the Federal Government of Austria, Honorprize ENCONTROS DA IMAGEM, Selection Portfolio Düsseldorf NRW Forum, Selections Voies Off Arles, Winner of Portfolio Review at PHOTO IRELAND, Selection LUGANO PHOTO DAYS, Shortlist CHIMERA ART AWARD etc. She also works as a Curator for post-photographic practices within the international artist collective 280A where she curated several projects and publications within Europe in cooperation with the Austrian Cultural Forum in Paris, the Unseen Co-op Amsterdam and the Athens Photofestival. She currently lives and works in Vienna.
