Christiane Peschek's works are set in a phygital world of self-sacralization and fluid identity expansion. In images and multi-sensory spatial concepts, she creates dialogues marked by intimacy and self-idealization.
The observation of the body on both sides of the screen, between on- and offline identities are a consistent subject in her projects. Rituals, retreats, retouched images, scents, and sensual ethereal materials such as the deliberate use of Wi-fi radiation and low frequencies become hybrids of virtual transformation in a post-internet reality. Interacting with near-body technologies such as smartphones, she explores the "hyper-ego" by using the surface of touchscreens to create experiences at the intersection of technology and cosmology. Peschek's work has been exhibited internationally in galleries and institutions including most recently Museum Marta Herford, Salzburger Kunstverein, Benaki Museum Athens and NRW Forum Düsseldorf. She has been awarded several international prizes including the UNSEEN Tesla Art Trail Award, the Emergentes DST Honorary Award and the BKA State Scholarship for Artistic Photography. Her work is in collections such as the ING DiBa Art Collection, Artothek des Bundes Belvedere21, Museum für Moderne Kunst Salzburg and Kupferstichkabinett Wien. She lives and works in the cloud.
