Conny Maier

Conny Maier works and lives in Berlin and Baleal, Portugal.

„I see my work as an impulse that pushes itself to the surface. There is this clear desire to create something. I have a pretty concrete idea in mind and in the end something completely different usually arises.“- Conny Maier (translated from an interview by SMAC)

Conny Maier works with the contradictions and possibilities in a society that is supposedly constructed with set limits. The artist questions the relationship between contemporary cultures and their patterns of behaviour, social classes and body politics. Her works focus primarily on illuminating the grey areas between art and construction, play and seriousness: Maier’s ductus allows the viewer to take up several perspectives and to be confronted with decisions himself. Her presumably ironic pictures allow the question to be posed as to how humans organize themselves in a coded environment and what realities can be hidden behind this facade.
