Christiane Fichtner

Biography

deutsch ::: english

Since 2004, I have been commissioning people to write a biography for Christiane Fichtner. The writers are given only 2 details around which to create a narrative: The date of birth of 25 May 1974, and the current occupation of artist.

The finished biographies are given to a costume or fashion designer, who then designs the clothing for each narrative. I am then photographed in these outfits by different photographers. The photographers choose where and how they want to do the shooting.

In the first part of the project, nine photographs measuring 2 x 1 meters (large-sized prints on aluminium plates) were created. I have presented the photographs at different exhibits. Each photograph is accompanied by a biographical narrative describing the life of Christiane Fichtner. Each picture shows Christiane Fichtner as a different person that corresponds with her biography.
