Jasmin Werner, Artist


Jasmin Werner, The Wheel of Life, 2018. Installation view Kunstverein Braunschweig 2018


Jasmin Werner (born 1987 in Troisdorf, Germany, lives and works in Cologne) explores in her architectures of power and objects of status. In her practice, she draws attention to the desire to align oneself with nature and a pre-modern past, while occupying spaces of production and consumption. According to Werner’s iconology, one could also argue that the structural moments of our shared reality will necessarily remain within a repetitive continuum of time.

Jasmin Werner began her studies at the HfG Karlsruhe in photography and completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Rietveld Academy Amsterdam in 2012. From 2012 - 2016 she attended the HfbK Städelschule in Frankfurt, first in the class of Simon Starling and later as a master student of Peter Fischli. In 2013 she was awarded the Tembe Art Studio residency in Moengo, Suriname by Mondriaan Fonds. In 2017, she travelled to South Korea as a fellow of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Seoul. Her work has been shown at Kunstverein Braunschweig, Bärenzwinger (Berlin), Kunstverein Ingolstadt, Folkwang Museum (Essen), Damien & The Love Guru (Brussels), DuMont Kunsthalle (Cologne) and Moengo Festival of Art (Suriname), among others. In September 2021, she will open her exhibition Senorita Latifa Sharifah at Galerie Guido W. Baudach.
