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


Nina Schipoff is a german interdisciplinary artist, based in Geneva, Switzerland. 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.

Her artworks investigate the concepts of space, time and movement. She questions the invisible and visible traces of the interaction between man and landscape and their ecological and geo-political 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.

Schipoff has been presenting her artworks in numerous exhibitions in Europe, the US, Asia, India, Africa and the Middle East. Her work is part of the collection of the Bangkok National Gallery and many other public and private collections.
