Artist in Residence – Janine Gerber

Janine Gerber is a german artist, working and living in Lübeck close to the Baltic sea. She graduated in 2006 from the School of Art and Design Berlin-Weißensee and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Munich. In 2018, she was awarded the 1st Possehl-Art Award for Lübeck Art.


Her artistic research is based on the transition between the illusional space in a painting and the natural space.

Janine explores themes of materiality and its poetic value, sensory aspects of surfaces like ink, oil paint or paper (unprocessed white, or paint with machine oil) and the opening towards the three-dimensional.


During her one-month stay at NES artist residency Janine is focused on themes of folding and tangency in nature.
