Pia Lanzinger is an artist based in Berlin and Trieste. Her practice focuses on collaborative projects in public spaces that attempt to draw attention to breaks and inconsistencies in the conditions of daily existence, and enable communicative experimentation. Her works deal with less observed structures of contemporary living spaces, and apply aspects of pre-existing architectural settings to social and historical frames of reference. In doing so, they also look for the roots of conflicts; that is, available alternatives.
She realised projects in public space and exhibited widely both locally and internationally.
