Christina Krys Huber (they) lives and works in Berlin and Basel. In their artistic practice they explore through painting, performance and writing how body movements and languages can be understood in relation to history, experienced in the moment, and in what ways they are lived and remembered. In the figures and forms that emerge on the canvases, the bodily shapes tend to fade, they move and intertwine with the transparencies. Their artistic work is accompanied by ongoing research into themes of intimacy, touch, movement, queerness and social activism.
After studying abroad at Central Saint Martins (UAL) in London in 2018, they graduated with honours as a master student of Swiss painter Valérie Favre in Fine Arts at the UdK Berlin. Their works have been shown in 2022 at Display in Zurich (duo show) and Berlin (solo show) curated by Swiss independent curator Marie DuPasquier, as well as Künstlerhaus Sootbörn, Hamburg (2021), Kunstquartier Bethanien, Berlin (2020), Museum im Bellpark, Kriens, Switzerland (online project; 2020), Kunst(zeug)haus Rapperswil, Switzerland (2020), Tate Exchange Tate Modern, London (2019), among others. Their graduate project was nominated in 2021 for the President’s Prize of the UdK Berlin as well as the Elsa Neumann Scholarship (Nafög). In 2022 they received a scholarship from Basel Stadt and Stiftung Kunstfonds/ Neustart Kultur.
