Christina Clar is an artist working in the midst of performance, events, installations and computer-extended applications. She builds spaces with sound and image, using architecture as well as physical interventions, poetry and media, blurring the limits between the mind/consciousness/imagination-projected spaces and those “real-existing” ones. These spaces take on different forms: they can unfold in a performance or installation, produce an autonomous structure like a stage set, appear immaterially in soundscapes or animations, be immediate and ephemeral like sensations and experience in workshops or walks.
Collaboration and international cooperation partners are essential components of her work. She worked with Peter Sellars on contemporary opera productions for the Salzburger Festspiele, with TNC-Network at Ars Electronica Festival, with the open-source organization constant, with composers Nicolas Frize from Paris and Mark Grey from California, with the Canadian director Robert Lepage, with architects Roberto Benavente (CL) and Natasha Roublov (FR), with the musicians Bernard Lubat, Pascal Contet , Madame Patate (FR), Nikos Veliotis (GR) and Tomás Tello (PE), with authors and directors Dieudonné Niangouna (CD), Yves Arcaix (FR) and Marion Rothhaar (DE), with the fine art artists Yves Chaudouët (FR), Marcos Lutyens (US) and Peter Jap Lim (DE), and with the dancers Ula Sickle (CA) and Antonella Cusimano (IT), the filmmakers Matt Richards (AU) and Niki Meixner (AT); for a coproduction of the Steirischer Herbst and the Museum am Bach (AT) she developed performances in public space and composed music for cultural events in nature with the organisation UNIKUM (AT). She presents her work in museums, galleries, theaters and opera houses, concert venues, train stations, hospitals and health care facilities, ephemeral architectures and public spaces.
Simultaneously to her artistic practice she developed music and movement workshops with teenagers and persons with impairments in Europe and Australia and trains to become a Feldenkrais practicioner.
