Christina Helena Romirer, born in Graz, lives and works in Vienna. She studied Transmedia Art at the University of Applied Arts (diploma 2017) and stage design at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz (diploma 2009); she works as a visual artist and scenographer. 

She has participated in numerous artist-in-residence programs and national and international exhibitions. Her works have been shown at Forum Stadtpark (AUT), Neue Galerie Joanneum (AUT), ALU Sarajevo (BIH), Flux Factory (USA), EXPO 2021 Dubai (ARE) as well as in the context of Kulturjahr 2020 (AUT), Regionale Xll (AT), steirischer herbst (AUT) and other spaces. In 2019/ 2020 she was a grantee of the Kunstraum Steiermark scholarship. In 2022 she received the Art Promotion Award of the City of Graz.


In her artistic works - sculptures, installations and interventions in public space - places, situations and relationships play an important role. 

How do we interact in social and societal structures? How are value systems generated and maintained? How do we navigate through a world controlled by consumption? What scope of action is open to us and where is it restricted?

Different materials, textures and set pieces of objects that are permanently present in our everyday life or shape it, often form the starting point of her works. These are questioned and analysed in their primary meaning, removed from their original environment, transformed and placed in a new context. 

Equally relevant is her examination of language. Through perception and language games, she tries to associatively open up new spaces of thought and explore interactions, free spaces and boundaries in our current social structures.
