Nina Schipoff is a German interdisciplinary artist, based in Geneva, Switzerland, working in painting, video and photography.


She graduated from the Geneva University of Art and Design( HEAD) in 2008 and obtained a postgraduate diploma in painting from the Geneva School of Stage Set Design in 2009.


In her artwork, she investigates the concepts of space and time. She questions the invisible and visible traces of the interaction between man and landscape and their ecological and geopolitical impact in an accelerating world.


Her narrations recount the fragments of a disappearing untamed paradise, like frozen memories of the complex equilibrium in the evolution of life. Utopia?
