Zita Schüpferling creates site-responsive subtle performances and interventions in space and place. She has a passion for form and material, yet the main focus of her practice is the audience encountered space.
Currently she is interested in creating and interfering atmospheres. In recent performances, group exhibitions function as a stage for her work to take place. In an ongoing project she hires actresses and actors who are asked to be present at exhibition openings, as visitors among the visitors, distributing positive climate on the attendees with minimal gestures.
Selected projects and group exhibitions include: Jahresgaben,
