Nina Schipoff is a Swiss and German interdisciplinary artist, living in Geneva, working in painting, photography, and installation.

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, time, movement, and haptics.

She questions the invisible and visible traces of the interaction between man and nature 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. Utopia
