Janine Eggert, born 1978 in Lübeck, DE, studied Visual Arts at the University of Fine Arts Hamburg and at Ar.Co, Çentro de Arte & Comunicaçao Visual, Lisbon. As an artist, she navigates between different media such as sculpture, installation, printmaking and video and works
artistically both as an individual and as a duo together with Philipp Ricklefs since 2005. Her work has been exhibited internationally including in Zurich, New York, Miami, London and Valencia.
In her artistic practice she deals extensively with the contradictory values of our time. Analyzing the designed and man-made world, she develops alternative concepts to established functions, economic requirements and patriarchal power structures while drawing from a wide range of techniques and materials.
