ith an interest in still life, materiality and surface character, Pia Kintrup uses the medium of photography to transform three dimensional subjects into two dimensional artworks, thereby fixing a particular perspective. She is particularly informed by artificial settings and constructions which create conflicts within our everyday life, addressing themes such as control and surveillance. Alongside her groundwork in photography she creates installations and sculptures, working with the contradictory relationships of man and object, surface, materiality and artificial structures.

ideas of staging, creating imitations of reality and natural structures. This is particularly seen in her ongoing series ‘the nonexistent areas are of particular interest’ which builds up like a story in a novel; with the viewer receiving more and more information that was previously unknown about a place or a planet. Kintrup gained both her BA and MA in Photography Studies and Practice from Folkwang University of Arts in Germany. She has won international prizes for her work, and has exhibited around Europe, Asia, Canada and the USA. piakintrup.com info@piakintrup.com
